Aspen Pumps Group has acquired ACR chemicals and tools specialist Advanced Engineering.
Adrian Thompson, CEO of Aspen Pumps Group, said: "We are delighted to announce that we have formed an even closer relationship with Advanced Engineering. It’s a natural fit; as iconic and very successful UK manufacturing and export businesses, we share the same core values. Both companies have built reputations on quality, excellent customer service and strong wholesaler relationships. Advanced Engineering’s chairman, Barry Lea, has done an outstanding job in shaping the business into a great pan-European brand.”
Barry Lea said: “I am absolutely delighted that Advanced Engineering has joined the Aspen family. Advanced Engineering and Aspen Pumps Group share a common heritage of entrepreneurial vision, growth, product innovation and world class customer service.”
The move follows Aspen's acquisition of air conditioning and refrigeration tools specialist JAVAC UK and French distributor Salina within a two-month period last year.
