Our company now encompasses seven distinct brands that serve
the biopharmaceutical, industrial, food and beverage, mining, environmental and
original equipment manufacturing market sectors. The name change follows the
recent acquisition of BioPure, which signalled the company’s strategic move to
offer a wider range of solutions to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical
markets.

 

“Our new name unifies our growing portfolio of fluid path
technologies, it is a better expression of who we are, and a reflection of the
growing portfolio of businesses and opportunities that sit within our group,” Jay
Whalen, the group’s president, said in a news release. “Our sector market
focus, combined with the recent acquisition of BioPure gave us the opportunity
to rethink the way we present ourselves to the market. We can no longer simply
be defined as a niche pump or tubing company: we now offer customers a much
more holistic offering.”
