SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y.—Guyson Corp. of U.S.A. has acquired Automated Blasting Systems Inc. and will begin manufacturing wet blast machines.
Located in South Windsor, Conn., Automated Blasting Systems is a supplier of wet blast machines to the aerospace, automotive, cutting tool, electronics, metal working and other industries since 1988. The company was formed when it purchased the Vaqua product line from the Spadone Machine Co., which made the slurry-blast equipment for more than 40 years.
Guyson President Steve Byrnes said the company is excited about the significant expansion of its equipment offerings and the added growth potential of wet blasting technology. He said Guyson USA will retain Richard Gillott, former vice president and general manager of ABS.
The company is in the process of moving Automated Blasting Systems work-in-process machines, spare parts inventories, laboratory testing equipment, design engineering assets or intellectual property and customer files from South Windsor to Guyson's 80,000 sq.-ft. plant headquarters in Saratoga Springs.
