Aquasium Technology Ltd trading as Cambridge Vacuum Engineering (CVE)
In October 2001 Aquasium Technology Limited (ATL) acquired Cambridge Vacuum Engineering (CVE) and Wentgate Dynaweld Inc (WDI) from the Smiths Group.
CVE (www.camvaceng.com), although profitable, was performing below its potential. It had been a non-core business within Smiths (and before that in the TI Group). 2007 has seen strengthening of the CVE brand with WDI in the States now being known as CVE Inc.
