Wilo AG / Circulating Pumps Ltd

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Wilo AG of Circulating Pumps Limited

Affected market: Circulating pumps

No. ME/2532/06

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition of Wilo AG of Circulating Pumps Limited does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
