UK manufacturing firm acquires global product line

A UK manufacturing company’s growth plans have taken an exciting leap forward with the acquisition of a state-of-the-art product line from Europe.
A range of Variable Area (VA) Flowmeters will now be manufactured in Workington, Cumbria, after McMenon Engineering Services Ltd was chosen by global technology company ABB to make the VA flowmeter product portfolio that had been produced by ABB in Germany.
Following the acquisition, McMenon, under a supply partnership agreement, will continue to supply VA meters carrying the ABB brand and the meters remain part of ABB’s product offering.
McMenon, a manufacturer and supplier of quality flow and temperature measurement instrumentation, and ABB have a long-standing partnership.
McMenon CEO Anand Puthran said: “I take great pride in the fact that McMenon has been considered by ABB as a reliable new home for the VA flowmeter product portfolio.
“The fact that we were chosen over other global competitors is a testament to the quality of our product engineering and manufacturing capabilities and reputation for innovation.”
Complimenting the workforce, Chief Operations Officer Shiby Bernard said: “In the span of a few weeks, McMenon’s brilliant team successfully transferred the entire product line to Workington, UK.
“This acquisition will create stability, growth, and more opportunities for our workforce and new jobs.”
