McMenon brings major global product line to the UKVariable area flowmeters

A UK manufacturing company’s growth plans have taken a significant leap forward with the acquisition of a ‘state of the art’ product line from Europe. A range of variable area (VA) flowmeters will now be manufactured in Workington, Cumbria, after McMenon Engineering Services Ltd was chosen by global technology company ABB to manufacture its product portfolio that has previously been produced by ABB in Germany.

Following the acquisition, McMenon, under a supply partnership agreement, will supply VA meters carrying the ABB brand and remain part of ABB’s product offering. McMenon, a worldwide manufacturer and supplier of quality flow and temperature measurement instrumentation, and ABB have a long-standing partnership.

McMenon CEO Anand Puthran said: “I take great pride in the fact that McMenon have been considered by ABB as a reliable new home for the VA flowmeter product portfolio. The fact that we were chosen over other global competitors is testament to the quality of our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and reputation for innovation.”

Complementing the workforce, chief operations officer Shiby Bernard, said: “In the span of a few weeks, McMenon’s brilliant team successfully transferred the entire product line to Workington, UK. This acquisition will create stability, growth and more opportunities for our workforce and new jobs. Through proactive endeavours and the brilliant support of its team, the business is helping to secure its own future as we emerge from the after-effects of the pandemic and Brexit.”

The overall deal is set to create new jobs, increasing the company's global workforce by almost a third. With this acquisition, McMenon, already a highly recognised name in the global flowmeter and temperature instrumentation market, will be placed among the top international manufacturers of VA flowmeters. ABB customers will see no difference and can expect the same product quality they are used to.

Mr Puthran concluded: “This win for McMenon is also a win for UK manufacturing. Not often do we see manufacturing operations being transferred to the UK, especially from countries like Germany which are the best in the business. We have recently celebrated 75 years of manufacturing heritage in West Cumbria and we are proud to keep flying the flag for UK manufacturing.”
