Watson-Marlow acquires Japanese pump manufacturer

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has acquired the MasoSine sinusoidal pump manufacturing and distribution business from PRIMIX Corporation in Japan, through its parent company Spirax-Sarco Engineering plc, for £2.8 million.

Jay Whalen, President of Watson-Marlow, commented, “We recognise that the Japanese market has significant opportunities for growth for our market-leading products. The acquisition of this business from PRIMIX strengthens Watson-Marlow’s position in the hygienic pump market where we are able to offer applications expertise and provide ‘added-value’ to customers.”

This strategic move provides Watson-Marlow a footprint in the Japanese market for the first time and, for a 3-year transition period, Watson-Marlow’s new company, Watson-Marlow Co. Ltd., will be co-branded Watson-Marlow PRIMIX.
