Flomatic is an ISO 9001- and 14001-certified company with ARRA compliant and lead-free products.
Boshart Industries has been in business for more than 55 years, supplying the plumbing and water well markets. “This acquisition will only strengthen both companies as we both share the same vision and commitment to excellence,” said Gary Boshart, owner of Boshart Industries, in a company release. No changes are anticipated in the management of either Boshart or Flomatic operations.
