Flotronic Pumps, the UK-based manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps and associated accessories primarily for hygienic flow control applications was acquired by Unibloc Pump in August 2021. Unibloc Pump bought Standard Pump, the Georgia, USA-based manufacturer of hygienic and industrial process pumps, including drum pumps and other fluid handling equipment, at the end of last year.
“Our new market identity communicates to customers that today we offer a much more expansive line of hygienic product solutions for a wider variety of applications," said Chris Stevens, CEO of Unibloc Hygienic Technologies.
A new Hygenitec brand has also been created to represent a range of additional hygienic flow control products, such as valves, strainers, sight glasses, drum pumps and bubble traps.
“Customers are more time-pressed than ever before, and more focused on building best-in-class systems in their facilities,” said Mark Boyd, vice president of sales at Unibloc Hygienic Technologies. “As a result, we have designed our approach to the market to make it simpler and faster for customers to get the information they need on a wider variety of product solutions, all from a single company and a single point of contact.”
