STAGE ONE Cre­ative Ser­vices has com­pleted its ac­qui­si­tion of WGH Trans­porta­tion En­gi­neer­ing, a lead­ing leisure ride de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany.

This move will see the trans­fer of em­ploy­ees and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty and will se­cure the fu­ture of the WGH prod­uct port­fo­lio un­der the Stage One brand.

Stage One said the ac­qui­si­tion rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant join­ing of forces and en­hances its en­gi­neer­ing and de­sign ca­pa­bil­ity.

Mark John­son, Stage One chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “This rep­re­sents a very pos­i­tive step for our com­pany and our clients.

“Our au­to­ma­tion and en­gi­neer­ing of­fer­ing has al­ways been well re­garded.

“How­ever, this re­cent de­vel­op­ment adds real breadth and depth. We’re look­ing for­ward to bet­ter sup­port­ing ex­ist­ing clients and break­ing into new mar­kets.”

Stage One projects in­clude man­u­fac­tur­ing Thomas Heather­wick’s iconic caul­dron for the Lon­don Olympics and de­vel­op­ing aerial fly­ing sys­tems for global open­ing cer­e­monies.

WGH has worked on the Lon­don Eye, The Ur­bis Cen­tre, Legoland, The Ti­tanic Ex­pe­ri­ence and the UK’s old­est roller­coaster at Dream­land in Mar­gate.
