TTP Ventus acquired by The Lee Company

TTP Ventus is delighted to share news that our business has been acquired by The Lee Company, a leading precision fluidics business based in Connecticut, US.

TTP Ventus was founded in 2017 to develop and manufacture world-leading piezoelectric micropump technology. The last five years have seen our product portfolio expand substantially, with significant advances in performance and lifetime. Today Ventus’ products enable innovation across a wide range of applications, from medical devices to air quality monitoring. This success would not have been possible without the support of our customers.

As Ventus grows, it is of the utmost importance to us that we maintain the high standards that our customers expect. The Lee Company brings the capability and resources to scale manufacturing whilst maintaining the collaborative, deeply technical approach to customer support that sets both companies apart.

There are other strong parallels between Ventus and The Lee Company. Both companies focus on developing miniature, high-precision, high-performance fluidic components and solutions. We have a similar culture, emphasising technical excellence and our shared values of quality and reliability. Our products are complementary to one another—pumps and valves go hand-in-hand after all—meaning that together we are able to help customers solve a wider range of fluidic control challenges than ever before.

We would like to reassure our customers that it is business as usual for Ventus. We will continue to supply the same products and services to the standard our customers expect, operating from our location south of Cambridge in the UK. For the time being our contact information will remain the same, although we expect that our web, email and telephone details will change over the coming months—and that our name will change to LEE Ventus. Over time, we expect to provide customers with local service and support from one of The Lee Company's regional locations around the globe.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to our customers for your continued support and custom. We look forward to continuing to do business with you as LEE Ventus.
