We are very pleased to announce that AWL has been acquired by the DEC Group. DEC are a private owned company who have locations in China, Germany, India, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland (Headquaters), UK and the USA and operate in over 60 countries worldwide.

A clear commitment to this acquisition is the joint competence and ability to create unique flow chemistry solutions and the desire to further advance market-leading manufacturing concepts. The Dec Group thus combines the unique skills and expertise to offer process flow solutions from raw materials handling to synthesis and secondary manufacturing to primary and secondary packaging.

Alastair Barton, MD of AWL comments “We are absolutely delighted to join forces with the Dec Group which opens a great opportunity to deliver enhanced capabilities to our customers in the UK and worldwide whilst offering Dec customers access to our core competence in advanced reaction and crystallization as well as continuous filtration and drying techniques.”

The acquisition supports Dec’s strategic approach to fill the gaps in continuous manufacturing solutions, with a special focus on innovation and revolutionizing the process industry once more. 

“By welcoming AWL into the Dec group of companies, we will be offering unique and true value to the global chemical, pharmaceutical, food and other process industries allowing us a transition into an even broader role and clear demonstration of leadership capabilities.” said Frederic Dietrich, Group Managing Director of Dec.
