Unibloc Pump, a Kennesaw, Ga.-based manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, air-operated double-diaphragm pumps and other flow-control products, said it continues to grow its family of hygienic flow control brands through the acquisition of Standard Pump.
Duluth, Ga.-based Standard Pump is a 30-year-old manufacturer of sanitary and industrial process pumps, including drum pumps and other fluid-handling equipment. Standard Pump serves the food and beverage, chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and other diversified process manufacturing industries in more than 50 countries. Standard Pump's 21,000-square-foot Duluth facility provides engineering, fabrication, testing, shipping and receiving all under one roof, Unibloc said.
"We are thrilled to welcome Standard Pump to the Unibloc Pump family of companies," said Chris Stevens, CEO of Unibloc Pump. "Standard Pump's precision-engineered drum pumps and hygienic pump packages position Unibloc for accelerated growth. Additionally, Standard Pump's in-house fabrication strengths and its robust distribution network will provide new opportunities to grow sales across all flow-control brands under the Unibloc Pump banner.”
This is the second acquisition in four months for Unibloc Pump, a May River Capital portfolio company. In September 2021, the company announced its acquisition of Flotronic Pumps, a Bolney, England-based manufacturer of specialized hygienic, air-operated double-diaphragm pumps and related accessories.
