The businesses provide testing, repair, engineering and maintenance services for pumps, valves, hydraulics and plastics systems. Their primary markets include manufacturing, water, utilities, waste management, mining and oil & gas.

Founded in 1988 and privately owned, the businesses operate with a combined team of 38 employees and generated 2016 revenues in excess of AUD 7 million.
