BSP-TEX acquired Argento UK in 2018. Argento UK was established in 2004 and offers a subcontracted manufacture service specialising in the manufacture of sub-assemblies, especially electro-mechanical systems in metal or plastic housings, enclosures and cabinets. The manufacturing facility is based in Beccles, Suffolk.

The highly skilled team can advise on design optimisation and component sourcing. Every operation carried out in the facility is closely monitored and controlled according to a quality management system.

CNC punch profiling is one example where choice of technique can bring costs down, depending on part complexity and batch size. Punching machines can generate simple formed features such as dimples, louvres, logo indentations and knockouts, thus avoiding the need for additional operations.

Argento UK offers manual TIG welding and comprehensive metal dressing processes as part of its sheet metal fabrication service. The dressing capability allows stainless steel fabrications to be finished to a high standard, removing oxidisation marks and reapplying grain to brushed finished items.

Today the service benefits from the breadth of experience and resources within BSP-TEX and the TEX GROUP, including TEX PLASTICS who can provide design, prototyping, plastic enclosures and injection moulded plastic components.
