Commenting on the new partnership, managing director of Brammer and Buck & Hickman, Ian Ritchie said: “Our portfolio of products is curated to add value to our customers through reducing total acquisition costs, improving production and reducing working capital. Adding Grundfos, to our offering of more than 60,000 products is therefore a natural extension of our services as their values closely match our own.
