“Baldwin and Francis has a long established history in the markets we already operate," said CEO of the Pyroban Group, Brian Quarendon. “Investments and improvements at the Sheffield manufacturing operation will help bring new opportunities to this well-established business.”

Today, the company supports the mining industry with a range of switchgear, transformers, power centres and many other Exd or intrinsically safe electrical items. Core markets also include the oil and gas industry, rail and industrial applications.

“New ownership provides an exciting opportunity for the company to fully exploit its potential in its core markets and with the support of the Pyroban Group to expand into new markets,” says Chris Storer, newly appointed General Manager for B&F. “The new owners clearly understand the business and will give B&F the support it needs to grow.”

Brian Quarendon confirmed: “The Baldwin and Francis business will continue as normal with no interruption of supply. Customers will continue to receive the outstanding service and product quality they have come to expect.”
