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'.
