Ampac Acquires Cranford Controls Ltd

Ampac Acquires Cranford Controls Ltd

With effect from January 2012, Cranford Controls Limited, UK manufacturers of quality Fire and Security products, has joined the Ampac Group of companies.

As part of Ampac’s European operations, Cranford will remain a separate trading entity continuing to support existing customers and actively developing new products and markets. Cranford’s commitment to R&D and new product development will be further enhanced by the Ampac Group.
