Norris Holdings complete disposal of specialist pump business

We recently advised Norris Holdings Limited on its disposal of subsidiary Flotronic Pumps Limited. The team was led by Partner Simon Jordan and Executive Will Molony.

Background

Originally established in 1981, Flotronic Pumps has been designing bespoke pumping solutions for a wide variety of customers, and manufactures air operated double diaphragm pumps to order. Each pump has a unique “ONE NUT” design enabling rapid disassembly cleaning and maintenance. These are used for a wide range of applications including food, adhesives, pharma, petrochemicals and hazardous materials, with Flotronic also providing excellent support and after sales service.

Its reputation has been built upon quality and understanding customer requirements, innovation on its core product and technical leadership. It is the last remaining British manufacturer of air driven double diaphragm pumps.

The Business is based in Bolney in Sussex and has been in the Norris family since its inception. Customers and users are to be found across the world, and with its excellent reputation most are longstanding.

The shareholders of Norris Holdings wanted to realise their investment in the Business and sought a new owner that would be able to protect the heritage and take the business forward.
