On 28th February 2020, ANSUKA Group Limited acquired KTL Tooling out of administration.
Within days the new business, API Design & Build, was launched with a team of 23 staff who had been retained and brought into the new entity. These key skills and capabilities of the new business along with the security cleared facilities and substantial assets were a key strategic addition to the group. The previous company had an excellent reputation for skill set in the local area and the retention of these highly skilled jobs was a great achievement.
Soon after API was established, UK manufacturing suffered the effects of Covid-19 however; the business continued to be operational at all times through this challenging period. API have since increased its headcount from the initial 23 to 30 within the twelve-month period with some staff who were unfortunately lost during administration being brought back into the business. New contracts have been won and new and old relationships continue to be developed and strengthened. The business continues to grow and is focusing on developing new opportunities in existing and new areas.
API Design & Build continue to offer a full design and manufacture capability across a wide range of skill sets and requirements. The existing and transferred skills and capabilities have been retained, added to over the last year and are growing alongside the size of the business.
The API team welcome contact from both previous and potential customers and would be happy to discuss any requirements that we might be able to assist with.
