Irish company acquires majority stake in Scotland's Ferrier Pumps



Cork-headquartered EPS Group has expanded its presence in the UK with the acquisition of Scottish engineering company Ferrier Pumps.

Established by Brian Ferrier in 1981 and employing 47 between offices and workshops in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, Ferrier Pumps serves the utility, industrial, commercial, residential and agricultural markets.

EPS Group’s managing director Patrick Buckley said the deal will improve product offering, repair and project delivery experience.

“With a combined 92 years of experience between the two companies, we look forward to further strengthening our working relationship with the enormously experienced Ferrier Pumps team in the months and years ahead.”

With an expanding footprint in the UK with offices in Alton, Thetford and Lichfield in recent years, EPS is also no stranger to Scotland, having delivered a wastewater treatment plant in Inverurie and water treatment plant upgrade works in Tullich in partnership with Scottish Water delivery partner ESD.

PJ McFeeley, contracts director at Ferrier Pumps, said: “We have been working with EPS for a number of years on various infrastructure projects in Scotland and we quickly realised that there was a natural fit between both organisations.”

Buckley added: “We firmly believe that Ferrier Pumps will prosper further as part of EPS Group, leveraging our experience in the digital engineering and asset management spaces, as well as gaining access to our multiple technology and product partners.”
