Rob Fish, Divisional Managing Director of HWM-Water Ltd, says “This is a great acquisition for Halma and a good fit with HWM-Water Ltd. Both businesses now have a well-established M2M credibility in their respective sectors and there is great growth potential in existing and new market sectors. I look forward to working with Bill and his team to grow the businesses together and to provide a stronger value proposition for our customers and business partners.”
