2011 saw the benefits of the restructuring exercise that left Masterflex a focused player in high-tech hoses and connectors allowing a twin growth strategy of internationalisation and product development through enhanced R&D. With capabilities in complex, value-added components, the group sits at the speciality end of the spectrum, avoiding commodity issues and influencing design with customers. As a result, we view the opportunity for the group to advance further in premium markets as a key value driver, supporting organic growth of 8-10% pa.
