BDA Partners is pleased to announce that it advised Trillium Flow Technologies on the sale of its India business. The buyer was IMC Swarnaa Ventures Pvt Ltd, a JV between The Indian Mineral Company (“IMC”) and Swarnaa Group. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The business in India manufactures industrial valves for the oil & gas, water, chemical and power industries. It’s a leading manufacturer of ball valves, butterfly valves, diaphragm valves, safety relief valves and plug valves under the BDK™ Valves brand.

In 2010, BDA advised on the acquisition of BDK™ Valves, originally known as BDK™ Engineering Services, by The Weir Group. Flow Control division of Weir Group, which included BDK™, was acquired by funds controlled by First Reserve Corporation and renamed as Trillium Flow Technologies in 2019.

IMC is a leading distributor of steel products in India. Swarnaa Group is a leading construction company in South India. They formed a JV, IMC Swarnaa Ventures, to acquire the India business and corresponding BDK™ product line.

The transaction enables Trillium Flow Technologies to streamline its product offerings and best match the needs of their customers. IMC Swarnaa gets the opportunity to establish a valve manufacturing presence in its core market.

Kumar Mahtani, Managing Director, BDA Partners, said: “We’re happy to have helped Trillium Flow Technologies find an ideal partner for its India valves business. We’re happy to have worked on another successful transaction for the BDK Valves brand, with which we have worked for over ten years. This latest transaction will help the BDK™ business to scale up. BDA continues to identify and execute optimal, value-added M&A solutions for multinational clients in India.”
