AxFlow Great Britain expands its service and market coverage with Crest Process Engineering acquisition

AxFlow Ltd. Great Britain has acquired Crest Process Engineering Limited – Radstock, effective October 1.

The company sells pumps, spares, systems, ancillary equipment and service/repair in South West England and South Wales. Its main markets are Food & Beverage, Chemical, Industrial and Marine.

Crest Process Engineering has a strong regional presence in the field of fluid handling and service support, so it complements the four other UK service and repair centers in Slough, Huddersfield, Aberdeen, and Durham. This fits perfectly with the AxFlow strategy to support customer needs locally.

“The Crest Process Engineering acquisition raises AxFlow’s profile as a complete pump company and makes us an attractive partner for UK customers,” says Ole Weiner, CEO, AxFlow Holding.

“Crest Process Engineering has extremely good long-term customer relationships,” says Tony Peters, Managing Director, AxFlow Ltd. “The sales, technical and service knowledge within Crestpro is also very good – they see great opportunities to sell AxFlow’s products and services. It also kick-starts further AxFlow growth of pump sales and service in the South West of England and South Wales.”

With the addition of Crest Process Engineering, the AxFlow company in Great Britain has 95 employees, including 30 hands-on service and workshop staff.

AxFlow Ltd. Great Britain is part of the AxFlow Group, the Fluid Handling Solutions business group within Axel Johnson International. The AxFlow Group specializes in the marketing, distribution, and provision of complete sales engineering services for high-quality fluid-handling equipment.
