Ambic Acquires RF Electronic Controls (RFE)

Ambic Equipment Ltd completed a Sale and Purchase Agreement on 5th July to acquire the assets of RF Electronic Controls  (RFE), a division of  Robert Pringle Engineers Limited, based in Harlow, Essex. The business will transfer to Ambic’s recently expanded UK facilities in Witney, Oxfordshire where it will be integrated into Ambic’s manufacturing operation.

RFE is a long established company with a pioneering history in the development of peristaltic pump and dosing technologies dating back more than thirty years. It has become a key supplier of specialist peristaltic pump products to the dairy industry as well as supplying specialist equipment to the commercial laundry, dishwashing and water treatment industries. It has built up an enviable reputation for delivering high quality, specialist products for this niche market segment.

The RFE product range includes low volume and high volume peristaltic pumps, single and multiple chemical dosing systems, powder dosing systems and chemical alarm systems. RFE has excellent synergies with Ambic’s expertise in the manufacture and distribution of livestock health management products including teat spraying, teat dipping and teat foaming technologies for the dairy industry; the acquisition creates exciting opportunities for the development of new products which draw on the know-how and resources of both brands.

Upgrade to Ambic MilkSampler

The design of the Ambic MilkSampler has been updated with the addition of a new ultrasonically welded cap for the MilkSampler Body. This replaces the previous design of cap which clipped into position with an interference fit. The upgrade makes the MilkSampler fully compatible with backflush systems as this design is able to withstand the higher operating pressures in the milk line associated with back flush systems.


Ambic is pleased to announce the launch of its New Semi Automated Teat Dipping System which is ideal for dispensing thicker, barrier type teat dips.

MultiDipper™ is a simple, economical semi-automated teat dipping system which is designed to take the effort out of teat dipping. No more time consuming and tiring squeezing of dip cup bottles during milking – making it particularly suitable for thicker, barrier type teat dips which require more manual effort to dispense.
