FPE Global scales up with new acquisition
Posted on November 2016
FPE Global has kicked off its acquisition spree with the procurement of mixing technology specialists JW Process Equipment (JWP).
Founded in 2016 by engineering entrepreneur James Winkworth, JWP provides mixing technology and processing solutions to customers across a range of process industries. Based in Surrey, the company has a team of highly skilled industry experts, all of which have been transferred to FPE Global as part of the deal.
The acquisition will extend the portfolio of products offered by FPE Global to include a variety of mixing solutions, enabling the firm to offer true turnkey, value-added solutions to its target markets and customers. It will also provide JWP with full access to FPE Global’s leading application specialists and its 30,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, enabling JWP to increase its capacity to service UK and overseas customers.
As part of the integration, FPE Global’s industry-leading UK test facility will be further strengthened to offer full-scale materials handling and mixing capabilities for use by its rapidly growing customer base.
This deal is the first in a number of strategic acquisitions planned by FPE and further demonstrates the firm’s commitment to expanding its product and service offering to offer increased value to its customers.
David Cooper, CEO at FPE Global, said: “The addition of mixing technology to our business will significantly enhance our portfolio of products. Operationally, there are excellent synergistic opportunities to support JWP in further expanding its customer base and volume.
“From a customer perspective, the acquisition allows FPE Global to provide a compelling alternative to UK and overseas customers through the design, supply and servicing of turnkey materials handling and processing solutions.”
