- Year Founded:
Flownetix Limited was formed in 2002 as a spin-off company from the design company Univations Limited with the purpose of specialising in the design and development of low cost ultrasonic flowmeters for a wide range of applications.
The senior management team has a wealth of experience in instrumentation and the potable water industry and were responsible for developing the technology for the highly successful 100series low cost ultrasonic flow meter. This led to the company being awarded a Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Smart Award in 2002 to continue to develop the product which has resulted in the development of a whole range of flowmeters. The 300series, which is now setting the industry standard for low cost, high performance ultrasonic consumer water meters, was released in 2005 and has since won numerous awards for product innovation.
All product design, development, software engineering and pilot manufacturing is carried out in the company's laboratories. Keeping everything under one roof has allowed Flownetix to ensure that all aspects of the product's development cycle have been fully integrated and optimised to deliver a product fully fit for purpose at excellent cost with no compromise in quality or performance.
Large scale production takes place in an ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 accredited factory in China which has the capacity to produce over 1 million units per year. Operated by Automatic Manufacturing Limited (AML) of Hong Kong, the factories already produced electricity meters, water timers, glucose meters and an array of other telecom, medical and industrial products to the highest quality standards and so the Flownetix product range is ideally produced at this location. Every test carried out on every unit produced is logged, sent to Flownetix UK overnight and can be recalled at any time giving unparalleled levels of product traceability. Formed over 30 years ago, AML is itself an award winning company for its productivity, quality and innovation and now has over 3000 staff working in over 330,000 square feet of production space. Customer visits to the Flownetix production facilities are welcomed and can be arranged on request.
In October 2007, Flownetix formed Flownetix Middle East and North Africa LLC (Flownetix MENA) as a joint venture company based in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to support growing business in that region with locally based engineers.
