Balmoral Tanks expands with pipework acquisition

Balmoral Tanks has expanded into the pipe arena with the acquisition of Servomac Ltd, the Chesterfield-based pipework specialist, for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 1999, Servomac designs, fabricates, installs and tests pipework systems for the water, biogas and renewable energy sectors and will continue trading under that name as a division of Balmoral Tanks Ltd.

Balmoral Tanks is part of Aberdeen-based Balmoral Group Holdings Ltd.

Servomac's new £10m purpose designed factory in South Yorkshire opened in January 2018 and houses a brand new epoxy coating line and in-line shot blasting as well as the latest laser cutting technology and fabrication facilities.

Allan Joyce, managing director at Balmoral Tanks, said: “This acquisition provides a platform to extend our product offering to our global client base.

“Having worked with Servomac on a number of large projects the synergy between the two companies has been striking. I am delighted that the team at Servomac will continue to run the business on a day to day basis as their knowledge and experience is highly valued.

“The acquisition underpins Balmoral’s business strategy of differentiation in the market place. Our ambition of being the number one tank design and manufacturing company in the world has been strengthened with the ability to provide all associated project pipework and we look forward to an increasingly exciting future for the company.

“With improved and highly efficient manufacturing processes and a commitment to personnel development we consistently deliver on our brand promise of being ‘not just another tank company’”.
