Pump & Integrity’s portfolio of rental pumps and ancillary equipment, together with its operational and technical specialisation, provides mission critical pump-based systems and solutions across a spectrum of applications including water transfer, bypass, and pipeline maintenance.

“The acquisition of Pump & Integrity is an important step in positioning Griffin as a mission critical, comprehensive water management platform with a national footprint,” said Mike Sullivan, partner of Crossplane Capital.

“Pump & Integrity brings a talented management team and a fleet of specialised equipment to Griffin that will allow the combined company to provide deep capabilities for both ground and surface water management.”

The array of applications and new end markets Griffin will be able to address going forward positions the company as a solutions provider of rental-focused pump services.
