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.
