PG Flow Solutions AS acquires Calder

PG Flow Solutions AS has acquired 100% of the shares in the UK high-pressure pumping specialist Calder Ltd.

Calder is a leading high-end solution provider across industries for high-pressure pump solutions, with particular success within the oil & gas market where the company has proudly served leading oil services companies and operators since its inception in 1981.

PG Flow SolutionsCalder-Potts still in active role

Calder’s founder and Chairman, Ian Calder-Potts will continue his active role in the business as a board member in PG, and will own 14% in the merged company following a significant re-investment. Key members of Calder management have invested in PG, including Managing Director Peter Elton, Technical Director Peter Elliot-Moore and Sales Director Steve Sharp.

Cost effective pump solutions

“Calder is a great company run by an outstanding team” says Roy Norum, CEO of PG. “Like PG, Calder has for more than 30 years worked closely with customers to provide reliable, high quality, cost effective pump solutions.  Despite our many similarities, Calder and PG have very few overlaps in terms of products, solutions, customers and geographical footprint. Through Calder, PG takes an important step in broadening our portfolio and strengthening our competitiveness and international presence. 

From family business to international organisation

“I have followed PG for many years, seeing the company evolve from a well-regarded family business to a highly professional and truly international organisation. I sincerely believe that PG and Calder is a perfect match, with our combined strengths across markets we will be in a unique position to provide our customers with cost effective yet uncompromisingly safe and reliable low and high pressure flow solutions.”, says Ian Calder-Potts.

Following the acquisition of Calder, Norvestor will hold 58% of the shares in PG, with the remaining shares mainly owned by members of PG and Calder management. In 2014 the companies had combined revenues of about NOK 860 million and will at the time of closing have 200 employees across its five locations.
