With effect from March 2022, we are delighted to announce that Lander have purchased Franklin Tubular Products, USA, from the former Tricorn Group. The acquisition is a further commitment to our customers in the off- highway markets, and supports our ongoing diversification strategy.
FTP provides a strategic platform into the North American market, and further expands our global manufacturing footprint. The plant will be managed via Lander Group resources, reporting into the UK board of directors and will form part of our growing portfolio of manufacturing facilities in the automotive, off-highway, and industrial sectors.
Franklin Tubular Products has a history of supplying tubular solutions to some of the world’s largest blue-chip companies that extends over 3 decades. Based in North Carolina, FTP has over 60,000sq. ft of manufacturing space and a dedicated work force of around 120 employees. The company was originally set up to produce diesel injection lines and has since expanded to produce a full range of industrial tubular solutions.
We look forward to welcoming our new team members from FTP to the Lander family and we are excited about the opportunity to add Lander operational capabilities to a well-respected, long established, US manufacturing business.
