ChargePoint Acquires Assets of Forac


ChargePoint Technology, a UK-based manufacturer and supplier of precision containment valves to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, announced that it has acquired the assets of Forac Limited, a key business in its supply chain.

Under the deal, ChargePoint will have access to a compact pneumatic actuator used to open and close the isolation valves that feature in production processes used by the pharmaceutical, food and fuel industries. No financial terms were disclosed.

Forac will relocate its plant and stock from a base in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex to ChargePoint’s manufacturing plant in Speke, Merseyside. Founder and managing director of Forac Adam Bunyard has joined ChargePoint as part of the deal.

ChargePoint’s containment valves are used for the safe and sterile handling of powders in manufacturing processes, for example when making drugs in tablet form. The valves enable safe transferring of powders from one vessel to another during the production process. By minimizing dust emissions, they are specified to prevent cross-contamination and protect operators from exposure to potent substances.
