AxFlow UK Limited is to take on the UK distribution of both the Slack & Parr range of industrial external gear pumps and Griswold 811 pump range.
Located in Kegworth, Derbyshire Slack & Parr manufactures high pressure geared metering pumps for operating on the most arduous chemical applications. The company works within the man-made fibres industry and exports its multi-spindle extrusion gear pumps throughout the world for use on fibre spinning machines.
Announcing the decision to distribute Slack & Parr gear pumps in the UK , AxFlow managing director Tony Peters said that AxFlow would be targeting fluid handling and metering problems in the chemical, petro-chemical and coatings Industries.
In addition to managing the UK distribution of Slack & Parr’s range of pumps, the recent acquisition by Wilden Pumps of Griswold Pump Company has created a new business opportunity for AxFlow UK Limited. As part of its distribution agreement with Wilden, AxFlow is to take on the distribution of the Griswold 811 pump range in the UK .
Griswold manufactures ANSI centrifugal pumps for use in the petroleum, petrochemical, wastewater and paper pulp industries. Peters commented “AxFlow will be supplying the 811 in a wide range of sizes, capacities and materials so we shall be able to serve many different processing applications.”
