Industrial valve and pump manufacturer Flowrox has acquired NovaTek, a Swedish filtration technology company.
In a statement, Finnish company Flowrox claims that the acquisition will expand its product offering, including filter maintenance and spare parts services, as well as a growing variety of automation and accompanying services.
"Flowrox aims to grow not only its existing core, valves and pumps business, but also selected strategic growth areas,” said Simo Manninen, Vice President of Marketing at Flowrox.
“With the acquisition of NovaTek, we are seeking to grow in the solid/liquid separation.”
NovaTek filters are used in metallurgical industries to filter cadmium, cobalt, chlorine, copper and selenium. In addition they can be used for applications such as polishing of pickling acids in the steel industry, pigment separation and washing, the separation of gypsum in power plants.
“Flowrox was a natural choice to become a new home for NovaTek filters. Our customers will continue to receive the same products and services as before. After the acquisition, they will benefit from Flowrox’s wide range of other suitable products,” said Catarina and Robert Dellham, owners of NovaTek.
“Another advantage is Flowrox's worldwide sales and service network with local experts close to the customers. We are convinced Flowrox is the best successor to the business that our father Lars Dellham created.”
