Carl Coutts-Trotter


In Flowmax we found a business and management team with a very similar culture. This cultural fit was essential in our decision to bring Flowmax into the SA Bias Group in 2012. In addition, Flowmax’s business model of acquiring or partnering with medium sized family-owned industrial businesses has been extremely successful over more than 25 years and has created a group of diversified companies with significant growth potential.

We believe that the combination of family values, personal attention, common sense business acumen, and a diversified portfolio of companies will lead to many more years of success for the Flowmax Group. Flowmax has become one of the core pillars of the SA Bias Group.
