What PMC does

Alongside distribution of Flowtechnology-sourced components and products, PMC delivers bespoke solutions and complete systems for customers in a number of industries.

We ensure we are a dynamic business for our customers by continually developing our offering, from sourcing to distribution of products, to our bespoke design, manufacture and partnering services. The models of our two divisions support our strategy of achieving a focused fluid power group. They are supported by our Group central services and our key enablers.

Shared services

We acquire established, specialist businesses that extend our Group capability, but we believe in maintaining their heritage, individuality and specialism. Ensuring consistency for their customers is important to us, so we simply improve these businesses with our Group central services.

Service Centre team

Based at the UK headquarters in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, the Service Centre team covers the disciplines of finance, human resources, marketing, design and IT for the Group. As Group IT systems and working practices are introduced into new acquisitions with standardised methods of working, we are certain growth can be successfully supported by the existing small team.

Acquisitions team

During the year the Group has continued to develop its skill base in all aspects necessary for a successful acquisition programme. Sean Fennon and Bryce Brooks are responsible for target identification and lead negotiation, supported by Chris Kershaw who has previously worked in a series of M&A roles, including Group M&A Director at Spice plc. During the due diligence process Bryce and Chris are supported by professionals from the following organisations:

  • Legals – DLA
  • Tax, Accounting and Financial Due Diligence – KPMG, Grant Thornton, PwC
  • HR and Management Consulting – Collinson Grant and Mercer
  • Insurance – Marsh

The immediate post integration team is now led by internal appointments in Business Process and IT, and Financial Control, with follow on work undertaken in Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning. This entire process is structured under a '100 Day' project management philosophy led by the CFO.
