Thorite announces major acquisition in the North East

Monday 3rd April 2006

Bradford-based pneumatics and fluid process systems specialists, Thorite, announce an important development in their ongoing expansion plans with their acquisition of Hogg Pneumatic Solutions of North Shields, the region's principle pneumatics solutions providers.

Hogg Pneumatic Solutions has a history spanning 130 years and has built a reputation for excellence in the supply and servicing of industry leading brands of pneumatic control equipment such as Norgren.

Main areas of expertise cover project management from conception, circuit design and panel build to small machine/system build for process control applications.

Speaking of the development, Thorite's Managing Director Stephen Wright said: "Hogg Pneumatic Solutions fits perfectly into our existing product and service profile and the take over supports our strategy of expansion in this important industrial region. I am confident that the combination of Hogg Pneumatic Solutions' local knowledge, coupled with the additional products, resources and facilities the Thorite organisation embodies, will prove to be a winning formula for staff and customers alike."

Hogg Pneumatic Solutions' highly experienced internal and external sales personnel will be retained and augmented by the relocation of Thorite's existing north eastern service facility, currently based at Birtley, to the existing North Shields site.
