Ampair to acquire Westwind

Ampair, the Dorset-based wind turbine manufacturer, announces that it is in exclusive negotiations to acquire Westwind, the Belfast-based wind turbine manufacturer.

Ampair’s managing director, David Sharman, said: “This acquisition immediately enables us to offer a wind turbine solution from 100W through to 20kW, which is a unique position and which will be to the benefit of our worldwide client base. Ampair’s smaller turbines and Westwind’s larger MCS-certified turbines neatly span the full range.”

Andrew Graham, managing director of Westwind, added: “This is an important step for both companies. We have long been impressed by Ampair and it became clear that they were the natural partner for us with their strong engineering and worldwide sales.”
