As part of an asset deal, WILO USA LLC, a subsidiary of WILO SE, has acquired the operating business of QuantumFlo, Inc, a specialist in pressure boosting systems and intelligent pump systems. The company, based in Sanford, Florida/USA, offers high-quality products and innovative, user-friendly software solutions for the design and control of pressure boosting systems.
"With this acquisition, we are strengthening our presence in the USA in line with our 'region-for-region' approach. We are thus counteracting decoupling, the politically motivated separation of global value chains, and can serve local customer needs even more specifically with locally manufactured products. By acquiring QuantumFlo, we are also expanding our customer base to accelerate market development in the USA," explains Oliver Hermes, President and CEO of the Wilo Group.
David Carrier, founder and CEO of QuantumFlo, said at the closing of the transaction in late September: "As the leader in intelligent pumps systems in the U.S., and the creator of the World's first variable speed booster operating system, we are excited and honored to join our technologies with Wilo USA, LLC. This exciting new opportunity will allow QuantumFlo to further develop these innovations for a variety of markets throughout the Americas. The primary beneficiary of the sum of these companies is our representatives, specifying engineers and distributors."
Jeff Plaster, Managing Director of WILO USA elaborates: “In the pressurized booster market in the US the QuantumFlo brand represents leading technology, quality and a passion to provide solutions to their customers. This is the same value proposition that Wilo’s other strong brands provide in the OEM, Water Management and Building Services sales channels.”
"As a recognised and established US manufacturer of booster sets and HVAC systems, QuantumFlo is a real asset for the Wilo Group and we are looking forward to working with them," adds Mathias Weyers, Member of the Executive Board and CFO of the Wilo Group.
