Toolmaker Unique Tool & Gauge Inc. has acquired Gauge Rite Inc. in a deal that will allow the Windsor-based firm to expand its product offerings.
Gauge Rite is a maker of tooling gauges and fixtures. Unique Tool President Darcy King said in a Sept. 29 news release that his firm's customers had been asking it to build gauges, but the company did not have the capability on its own. The companies did not disclose the purchase price.
Gauge Rite will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Unique and remain in Windsor with its existing 10-person staff. King said he does not expect the acquisition will impact the employee base at either location.
Unique has been adding workers for the past 12-18 months and now has 90, up from 65.
