Amtek and FormTech will take 51% & 49% stake respectively.

FormTech is a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision hot, warm and cold forging components. It has the highest concentration of Hatebur Hot Forging machines in the world and is the largest independent automotive forgings suppliers in the USA.

Its mission is to build upon product expertise, process technology and market leadership to deliver value-added components and assemblies to automotive customers around the world.

Being the world leader in Hatebur Hot Forgings manufacturing, FormTech will bring its state-of-the-art forging design and process technology to the JV. The Joint Venture will be another product diversification for Amtek and also comes as a backward integration, as it is already one of the largest manufacturers of fully machined forgings for various applications.

This Joint Venture will be another milestone for the Amtek Auto Limited and will complement the company’s already significant forging division whilst also a step forward in direction of expanding its customer and product portfolio as well as attaining world class technological edge in automotive component manufacturing.
