US-based Roanwell Corp. purchases Bees Manufacturing LLC gains entry to marine market.

Roanwell, a maker of rugged communications equipment and contract manufacturer of high precision close tolerance machined parts, will be able to enter the marine marketplace through the acquisition.

Bees Manufacturing, LLC, ("Bees"), est. 1929, of Weymouth, MA, is a contract manufacturer of various alloy and plastic precision machined components for OEMs in the deep sea marine, medical, and industrial markets.   

Bees manufacturing operations will merge into Roanwell Corporation's Absolute Manufacturing Division, located in Pepperell, MA.  The name "Bees" will be discontinued as products will be shipped under the Absolute Manufacturing name.  Absolute Manufacturing specializes in precision machining and assembly of close tolerance parts made from challenging materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, nickel alloys, titanium and other engineered materials.  The company provides multi-axis CNC machining, turning, assembly, and program management for the medical, defense and industrial markets.
