Norgren parent company IMI plc adds Analytical Flow Products’ (AFP) range of precision fluid control products to Norgren portfolio
LITTLETON, Colo. – IMI plc (“IMI”), the international engineering solutions group, is enhancing the capabilities of its fluid power subsidiary, Norgren, through the acquisition of Analytical Flow Products (AFP).
Founded in Quebec in 2007 by Yves Gamache and André Fortier, AFP manufactures an extensive range of precision fluid control products, including a family of highly specialized diaphragm valves critical to chromatography (separation sciences) as well as a broad range of other analytical platforms.
The acquisition of AFP is highly complementary with other Norgren businesses, including Norgren Kloehn and Fluid Automation Systems, serving OEMs and end users in life sciences, energy and industrial markets. AFP’s technical leadership and Norgren’s global commercial footprint and long industry experience combine to give these users access to advanced analytical valves, industrial valves, rotary actuators and accessories, as well as custom engineered fluid control components and assemblies.
Yves Gamache and other AFP employees will stay with the company and customers may continue to do business through the usual AFP channels during the transition.
A world leader in pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies, Norgren works closely with customers to gain a deeper understanding of their engineering needs, and then connects its people, products and expertise to give their equipment and their business a clear advantage. Norgren’s reputation rests on a world-class portfolio of high performance products, the innovation and technical expertise of its 6000-plus people, and an ability to deliver exceptional local service. A subsidiary of the £2.13 billion turnover engineering group IMI PLC, Norgren has a sales and service network in 75 countries, technical centers in the USA, Germany, UK and China, and manufacturing facilities around the world. www.norgren.com
