Green Energy: Flowmax invests in Essco Controls

Investing in Green-Energy-focused Essco Controls Ltd

Flowmax announced today the acquisition of a majority holding in the shares of Southampton based Essco Controls Ltd. Essco Group designs green-energy focused products for the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and process industries with market leading energy efficient products and systems.

This acquisition supported the long term aim of Richard Stammers, Essco’s Managing Director and founding owner to reduce his shareholding whilst continuing to lead the business. Richard wanted to free up some of his equity in the business but wasn’t planning on retiring in the short term being a younger man in his 40’s.

It was important for Richard to be at helm of the business supported by his chosen management team. Flowmax enabled two of Richard’s directors to personally buy-into the business which retains the established senior management team. This also provides continuity for the business and staff as an independent company within the Flowmax group.

Essco is firmly committed to a green energy focus. This sits well with Flowmax’s vision to build its up environmentally sound portfolio. Flowmax sees the acquisition as a positive step towards supporting companies working to reduce energy use, while continuing its focus on fluid control and management products.
