Crane buys Delta Fluid Products

Building services supplier Crane Ltd has bought Delta Fluids Products.
Crane Ltd, the owner of the Crane and Hattersley brands has purchased Delta Fluid Products to strengthen its position in the building services and gas markets.

Delta Fluids' managing director Brian Travis and finance director Steven Burr are leaving the company and sales and marketing director David Pye has joined Crane Ltd as sales director for its building services division. Delta Fluids' St Helens base is not expected to have an onsite MD.

Delta Fluids Products owns the brands Nabic, Rhodes, Wade, Brownall and Sperryn and employs 220 people. It supplies safety and pressure valves for commercial and industrial hot water, steam and air applications under its NABIC brand, bronze valves and industrial pipe fittings under its Brownall brand, brass compression fittings and accessories under its Wade brand and sight flow indicators under the Rhodes brand. Delta Fluids also supplies regulators and ball valves to the gas industry (under the Sperryn brand)

David Pye will be heading up the UK sales teams for the Crane Fluid Systems, Hattersley, NABIC, Brownall, Rhodes and Wade brands. Pye now reports to Mark Hopes sales and marketing director for Crane Ltd.

Peter Wilson, managing director of Crane Ltd said 'The products are totally complimentary with our existing range and follow the same common distribution channels'.

Wilson said 'The Building Service brands will be sold through our existing Crane and Hattersley sales teams which will be strengthened by the addition of Delta staff, while the Wask and Sperryn teams will be combined to offer a wider portfolio of gas products'.

He added 'This acquisition will enable us to provide our customers with a wider choice of products and further enhances our position as an innovative, cost effective provider of solutions for the fluid and gas handling markets'.
