Unibloc Hygienic Technologies Launches North American Flotronic Pump Production

Unibloc Hygienic Technologies, a global provider of hygienic positive displacement pumps, air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps, drum pumps, and other flow control products, announced the expansion of its Flotronic® pump production from one facility to two, on two different continents. In addition to the original facility in Bolney, England, the Duluth, Georgia, UHT facility has now begun producing the unique One-Nut® AODD pump design.

The company decided upon this manufacturing expansion to accelerate delivery times to its North American customer base. The production expansion will drastically cut North American lead times from 6-8 weeks down to one week for standard pump configurations. The Flotronic AODD pumps will be assembled, serviced and tested in the Duluth facility, which already produces the Hygenitec and Standard Pump brand drum and AODD pumps. North America based sales, customer service and application engineering will be supported by the Engineering Center of Excellence based in Bolney, England.
