SAS Machine Co Ltd (formerly SAS Leather Machine Co) have been bought by their management, Bob Moore and Elke Ruebsam. The main business remains the supply and service of bandknife splitting machines and skiving machines. However, a large portfolio of other machines for the leather and leather-related trades is maintained.

The headquarters of SAS are just inside the M25, the motorway which rings London, on the edge of Epping Forest, but service is provided throughout the UK by a network of service providers. It is hoped that the decision to undertake the MBO will be seen as a vote of confidence in UK manufacturing.
