Sleep Easy With Flotronic Pumps

Fogarty, the master quilt and pillow makers based in Boston, Lincolnshire relies upon several Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps from FPL in their production processes.


Established in 1877 by Edward Fogarty, the company uses 20 million kgs of feathers and 10 million metres of cloth each year, in the production of well over half million quilts and nearly 5 million pillows! That's not all, as Fogarty also manufactures shower curtains, bath mats and a wide range of textiles.
