Press release -
From Purus to BLS-industries
BRANDS AND NAMES OF OPERATIONAL UNITS HAVE BEEN STEAMLINED WITHIN THE PURUS GROUP
Brands and names of operational units have been streamlined within the Purus Group. This means that the well-known and widely dispersed floor gullies, toilets and chrome-plated copper pipes will continue to be sold under the Purus, Jafo, Unidrain and Joti brands in the future. However, the industrial units, e.g. factories and logistics units, will go under the name of BLS Industries.
BLS HAS NOW ALSO ACQUIRED TRIO PERFFEKTA
BLS has now also acquired Trio Perfekta, which has been developing and manufacturing plumbing fittings valves and copper pipes for 75 years. Trio Perfekta's product development and manufacturing is particularly focussed on safety, environment and design from a sustainability perspective. The acquisition of Trio brings turnover in BLS Industries to about SEK 600 million, of which Trio accounts for 10%.
The family-owned Purus company is an innovator in sanitaryware products and one of Scandinavia's leading manufacturers of sanitaryware for bathrooms and kitchens. Our products include floor gullies and channels, indoor waste systems, stainless steel interiors and stainless steel sanitaryware. Production is based in Sweden and we have sales offices in the Nordic countries and the UK.
Our roots go deep. The company was founded more than 100 years ago under the name Sjöbo and is still controlled by the same family. Today's Purus belongs to the eleventh generation of company owners, blacksmiths and engineers.
Purus has a strong position in the Nordic market. With a refined product range, Purus is synonymous with high quality, safety and innovative design. That is why our marketing communications increasingly focus on the brand, helping it make greater inroads outside of the Nordic countries.
