Fluid Controls Limited is a Distributor of control & instrumentation equipment representing world leading suppliers in the Analytical & Pollution Monitoring, Oil & Gas, Process, Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverage and Semiconductor industries.

As well as consistently high revenues and a strong balance sheet, Fluid Controls had a number of valuable intangible assets, including a team with highly specialized technical knowledge, a large contracted client base and a robust marketing plan that delivered high volumes of new leads.

The Directors were close to their market and had a realistic growth plan that would deliver transferable value to new owners.The successful bidder, Indutrade AB, is a large international industrial group comprising 200 companies with a strategy to grow both organically and by acquisition.

There was considerable synergy between the two companies. Indutrade was looking for a company that was profitable and operated in the manufacturing or distribution sectors and with a strong management team willing to stay on in the business. Importantly, the companies shared a strong ethos of quality and customer service; particularly relevant for the team staying on in the business post acquisition.
