Watson-Marlow Pumps Group has announced its name change. The group becomes Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group to better reflect its evolution from its roots as a manufacturer of peristaltic pumps and tubes to its current position as a world leader in fluid transfer technologies.
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, a subsidiary of Spirax-Sarco Engineering Group, has seven production plants and 28 direct sales offices worldwide. Headquartered in Falmouth, UK. The company brings together seven distinct brands that, combined, offer a full range of fluid transfer solutions for biopharmaceuticals, chemicals, agri-food, mining and the environment. Its name change follows the recent acquisition of BioPure, which ushered in a strategic move by the company towards expanding its offering for the biotechnology and pharmacy markets.
Commenting on the group's news, Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group President Jay Whalen said: "Our new name reflects the growth of our fluid transfer technology portfolio, an expression of who we are today, and reflects the opportunities and development potential of our group. Our approach to the market combined with the recent acquisition of BioPure has given us the opportunity to rethink the way we were represented. We can no longer simply be defined as a manufacturer of pumps or tubes, we now offer our customers much more global solutions."
The group's name change is part of a five-pronged growth strategy, which includes targeted investments in product development and supply diversification, highlighted by the acquisitions of MasoSine (sine-soidal pumps for agri-food), Flexicon (aseptic filling systems), and BioPure (single-use connection and tube systems for the biopharmaceutical sector).
