Unibloc Pump, a manufacture of positive displacement pumps, strainers, valves, bubble traps, and other solutions for sanitary flow control applications, has acquired of Flotronic Pumps, a UK-based manufacturer of specialized,  air operated double diaphragm pumps and associated accessories

“This acquisition is a perfect hand-in-glove fit for Unibloc Pump,” Unibloc CEO Chris Stevens said. “Unibloc Pump and Flotronic  Pumps are ready to drive accelerated growth by offering customers products and solutions fueled by our  passions for innovation, safety, and simplicity in maintenance to avoid downtime and increase efficiencies,”  Stevens added. 

“What we really like most of all about joining the Unibloc Pump family is that we share many of the same  cultural values of simplicity in product design, quality in products, unabashed customer-focus, deep industry  expertise, and a penchant for strong innovation,” said director of sales sales Leighton Jones. “These qualities will ensure that Unibloc Pump  and Flotronic Pumps will be successful moving forward by flourishing through common bonds,” added  Jones. 

“Important to this acquisition is that both companies share complementary market footprints,” commented Flotronic owner Stuart Whitehouse. “The combination will enable Unibloc Pump to grow its UK and European business, while also  giving Flotronic Pumps an unmatched North American foothold. That should pay off in greater market  coverage and increased overall value delivered to the customer,” Whitehouse added. 

Unibloc Pump is a portfolio company of May River Capital, a Chicago-based private equity firm devoted to helping lower middle-market industrial businesses grow and thrive.
