AxFlow strengthens service offering by acquiring RDC Productions

AxFlow France has acquired RDC Productions, a specialist in industrial equipment service and maintenance for pumps, heat exchangers, homogenizers and valves.

With a modern facility located west of Paris, RDC Productions also conducts integrity tests on exchangers and tanks and offers multi-brand equipment, spare parts and tailor-made systems. The company employs 43 people.

“RDC is a solid, well-respected provider of fluid handling service for the food, pharma, chemicals, petrochemicals and cosmetics – all important business segments for AxFlow,” said Ole Weiner, CEO of AxFlow Holding. “They have a long history, with a strong market position in the food and beverage industry, where AxFlow is also strong. This is a strategically important addition to our business and one that fits very well into the overall growth ambitions of AxFlow in Europe.”

“Food is a major business segment for both RDC and AxFlow,” explained Guillaume Chanay, managing director of AxFlow France. “AxFlow will now be able to become a one-stop shop, especially in the food segment, by adding to our already wide range of applications, products, and services, Meanwhile, RDC is expected to benefit from the increased visibility and sales activity generated through AxFlow sales staff.

The acquisition is in line with AxFlow’s strategy of growing by adding value-added service as a differentiator from its competition.
