Selling a business

Hinckley-based Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) firm Microset Products was acquired in a cross-border deal by French counterpart Groupe SOCOMORE. Serving a global customer base, Microset has been at the forefront of replication technology for over 40 years, specialising in a range of applications critical to assessing surface damage, finish and quality control of internal surfaces.  This strategic move enhances SOCOMORE’s NDT capabilities and solidifies its presence in the UK.
