Safety and environmental business Pyroban Group completed the acquisition of Adex Zonex Pte Ltd. in Singapore on 11th August. Adex Zonex specializes in the conversion of flame proof electric and diesel materials handling equipment, offshore packages including fully compliant Zone 2 compressors, generator sets and radiator to flywheel power packs. The company also supplies a wide range of related components including engine safety control systems, hydraulic, spring and pneumatic engine starting systems, spark arrestors, shutdown valves and lubricating systems. In addition, Adex Zonex provides short and medium term rental of flameproof forklift trucks to industrial markets.
Adex Zonex has a strong brand presence in the region and supplies oil and gas, petrochemical and manufacturing customers in countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
"This acquisition demonstrates Pyroban’s deep commitment to the Asia-Pacific market and our regional support for customers" explains Ian Ratcliff, CEO of Pyroban Group. "The Asia-Pacific market is growing and we expect to promote and grow all activities and services offered by the Pyroban Group in the area."
In a separate acquisition, Broadland Radiators and Heat Exchangers Ltd. has also joined the Pyroban Group as a wholly owned subsidiary on 29th July. Established in 1987 and based in Norwich, Norfolk, UK, Broadland Radiators designs, manufactures and repairs radiators and heat exchangers for diesel engine applications, predominantly in the petrochemical industry.
"We welcome Broadland Radiators as part of a strategic move to strengthen the Group’s product offering across oil and gas, marine, mining and industrial sectors, bringing valuable new technologies into our product portfolio" says Mark Towell, Business Development Director.
Both Adex Zonex and Broadland Radiators will continue to operate as focused businesses, sharing the benefits of being part of a larger international group of companies.
