International engineering solutions group IMI plc (IMI) has acquired Analytical Flow Products (AFP). 

Founded in Quebec in 2007 by Yves Gamache and André Fortier, AFP manufactures an extensive range of precision fluid control solutions.

These include a family of highly specialized valves critical to chromatography, as well as a broad range of other analytical platforms, including the testing of purity of gases in refineries.

The acquisition of AFP is complementary with other IMI subsidiaries and especially those of Norgren, including Norgren Kloehn and Fluid Automation Systems, both of which serve OEMs and end-users in life sciences.

Gamache, Peter Theissen and other AFP employees will continue with the company under IMI ownership.
