Under the deal, Wilo AG will acquire a 62 per cent, and 54 per cent stake in Mather & Platt Pumps, and Mather & Platt Fire Systems respectively. According to sources, Wilo is also taking over the debts of Jumbo Group companies.

The Jumbo Group holds shares in both the companies through Mather & Platt. The German major is acquiring the companies to make use of the existing know-how of the Jumbo Group companies in the manufacture of fire and pump products.
