AxFlow expands in Italy with acquisition of Generalcontrol
AxFlow Italy has acquired Generalcontrol, an Italian distributor of positive displacement (PD) pumps, instruments, vacuum pumps and compressors.
"The acquisition of Generalcontrol is well in line with AxFlow Group's strategy for growth based on distributing international premium brands and value-added selling through competence and local in-depth customer knowledge," said Ole Weiner, CEO of AxFlow Holding.
Generalcontrol’s product offering includes brands such as Wilden, Masterflex, Cole Parmer, GAST, Ametek and Almatec.
"Generalcontrol is a highly strategic acquisition for AxFlow Italy,” added Gabriele Tanzi-Mira, managing director of AxFlow Italy. “It has a highly skilled workforce and excellent facilities that have enabled it to establish an excellent reputation throughout the country. Its customer base will now be able to benefit from access to our portfolio of PD pumps and at the same time, we will be able to expand into markets where until now AxFlow has had limited exposure."
"We are very happy with the finalisation of this important process and we are very excited to become a part of the AxFlow Group,” commented Daniela Biagini, general manager of Generalcontrol. “We strongly believe that this step will guarantee continuity to the Generalcontrol business and that many synergies can be achieved between our two sales organisations, providing more top-level products and services to the customers we already serve and generating more business opportunities in new market segments."
