Hawk Measurement and FLO-CORP announce merger

Hawk Measurement America and FLO-CORP, manufacturers and suppliers of process instrumentation and cloud-based monitoring technology, have announced the merger of the two companies to create an expanded flow, level and asset monitoring solutions provider. The merger is effective as of 30 July 2019.

“Hawk and FLO-CORP are merging to increase our already high commitment to our customers by bringing the most innovative products to market and establish a manufacturing base in the Americas,” said Jack Evans, President of Hawk Measurement. “By combining Hawk’s award-winning measurement technology, together with FLO-CORP’s measurement monitoring solutions within a subscription-based platform, we are increasing our ability to provide unmatched customer support, innovative technologies and system solutions.”

The combined company is privately held and will operate under the Hawk brand. Les Richards will remain CEO of Hawk Measurement Systems. Jack Evans will remain President of Hawk Measurement and Dave Grumney, CEO of FLO-CORP, will become VP of Sales for Hawk Measurement.

“The merging of Hawk Measurement and FLO-CORP is a merging of like minds and philosophies, with the clear goal of increasing our capabilities to help our customers’ results, having available any level measurement, flow, process data collection, remote information distribution and fibre-based sensing solutions,” said Richards. “This merger will further facilitate a broader product portfolio, technical knowledge and support infrastructure. Together we will lead the way in providing industry-required solutions, reliably and simply.”

The merger is seen as a natural progression of the two companies’ focus on providing customers with complete solutions to reduce costs, mitigate risks and increase business agility.

“The combined company will be able to fuel innovation and provide services to our customers that will make an immediate impact to their bottom line,” said Grumney.

Established in Melbourne in 1988, HAWK develops and manufactures level measurement equipment based on different technologies such as acoustic wave, ultrasonic, microwave, radar, flotation cell level monitoring and fibre-optic sensing.

FLO-CORP is a US manufacturer of flow, level and cloud-based monitoring solutions. Starting in 1989 as a distribution company, FLO-CORP grew to manufacture its own product lines after seeing how frequently its customers needed more than just off-the-shelf solutions.
