Mattei acquires vehicle mounted power solutions provider Winton Engineering

Rotary vane compressor manufacturer Mattei has acquired Winton Engineering, the vehicle mounted power solutions provider.

The acquisition will enhance Mattei’s range of specialist engineered products, which include transit-related solutions for the rail sector and the hybrid and electric vehicles markets, and will broaden growth opportunities for Mattei’s global team.

Andy Jones, managing director of Mattei, said: “Combining our expertise in the design and manufacture of rotary vane compressors and specialist transit-related products with Winton’s skills in developing vehicle mounted power solutions will enable the current offering to grow and expand.”

Winton’s general manager Andy Gear said: “The acquisition is very positive news for the future growth of Winton. The backing that Mattei is providing means we are in a much stronger position in terms of product development and innovation. This opportunity will deliver benefits to all our customers.”

Giulio Contaldi, CEO of the Mattei group, said: “Winton has shown the UK what can be achieved with vehicle mounted power solutions. Following the acquisition, our aim will be to make these solutions available across the globe.”

  • Winton specialises in using the power of vehicle engines to drive auxiliary equipment, delivering compressed air and electrical power.
  • Its customers include many of the UK’s leading civil engineering, utility and tyre companies, and its systems can be installed in a wide range of vehicles, from light commercial to heavy goods.
  • Mattei’s rotary vane technology is used within Winton’s solutions, with vane compressors being considered more efficient than screw equivalents and generating less noise and heat.  

Mattei acquired Winton on June 19 2015 for an undisclosed sum. Mattei was advised by Carlo Nicolai of Nicolai Partners.
