COMPANY HISTORY

Truflo has operated from the same site in Witton, Birmingham, since Wilmot Breedon established the company in 1962. Originally, Truflo Ltd made valves for the oil and gas market as well as for the naval marine market. However, in 1994 a strategic decision was made by the then owners Charles Baynes plc, to move all of the oil and gas business to Truflo Marine’s sister company in Belgium, Truflo Rona, so that Truflo Marine could focus on the naval marine niche market.

Charles Baynes (renamed FCX International plc) was quoted on the London Stock Exchange until a mangement buyout in conjunction with Alchemy Partners in July 2002. This created a privately owned group of primarily flow control distribution and manufacturing companies. The Distribution Divisions of the group were sold in 2005 and the Truflo International group remained to focus solely on the specialist manufacture of valves, instruments and related flow control products, providing technical solutions and added value services. In May 2006, IMI plc bought the Truflo International group of six specialist valve manufacturing companies in a deal worth £113m.

IMI plc is an international engineering business specialising in innovative solutions and services for a wide range of industrial and retail customers. Its future growth is being built on the two business areas of Fluid Controls (Severe Service, Fluid Power, Indoor Climate) and Retail Dispense (Beverage Dispense, Merchandising Systems). Truflo Marine Ltd is now a Fluid Controls business of IMI plc.
