Over recent years, Watson-Marlow has moved beyond its traditional peristaltic pump business with the additions of MasoSine (sinusoidal pumps for use in the food and beverage sector), Flexicon (filling systems and associated equipment, used in the biopharmaceutical aseptic filling sector), BioPure (aseptic tubing connection systems, used in the biopharmaceutical process sector) and non-pump transfer tubing development.
 
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group’s president Jay Whalen said: “Our new name unifies our growing portfolio of fluid path technologies, it is a better expression of who we are, and a reflection of the growing portfolio of businesses and opportunities that sit within our group. Our sector market focus, combined with the recent acquisition of BioPure gave us the opportunity to rethink the way we present ourselves to the market. We can no longer simply be defined as a niche pump or tubing company: we now offer customers a much more holistic offering.”
 
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group is headquartered in Falmouth, UK, and is part of the Spirax-Sarco Engineering Group plc.
