RWC, a manufacturer and supplier of engineered water delivery, control and optimization products and solutions for residential and commercial plumbing applications, has acquired John Guest Holdings Ltd.
John Guest is a worldwide distributor of plastic push-fit fittings and pipe products. The company operates three manufacturing facilities in the UK and has an international sales and distribution network.
The acquisition of John Guest aligns with RWC’s strategy to add complementary products which broaden the solutions offered to end users and expand its market presence, particularly in Europe. The combined business will provide an end-to-end solution with applications from meter to fixture and floor to ceiling from a single manufacturer.
Heath Sharp, RWC CEO, said: “We are excited to bring these two great companies together. Our team is genuinely impressed with John Guest’s people and the culture within the organization. The company comes with a long history of innovation and industry leading execution. John Guest has created strong, well-respected brands that are highly regarded in their key markets globally. They bring innovative, clever products that we believe we can successfully leverage through our well-established international distribution network.”
