Group Finance Director at AC Valve Alliance Jessica Findell, said: “Our expanded facilities will allow us to meet a growing demand for our specialist manufacturing and engineering capabilities. In the new building, we plan to install an overhead gantry crane system which will enable us to manufacture larger pipe skid systems to serve a number of niche markets in the valve industry.

“Phil and Beth at Bray & Bray have been our trusted advisors throughout the entire deal process. Their professionalism, expertise and brilliant communication have been invaluable in helping us to drive forward our expansion plans.”
