Misting manufacturer and specialist Plumis has secured investment from Aqua+, as part of a bridge funding round. 


Aqua+ is a Dutch family business with a strong reputation for reliability, expertise, and excellent customer service. The company has been providing high-quality fire safety solutions, including fire suppression systems, for over 45 years.

The funding has been raised to support Plumis’ continual capital spending in product development, international certification, and to launch its latest product this autumn. As part of the deal, Aqua+ has also secured distribution rights for Automist in the Benelux region – supporting its strategic expansion goals.

“Plumis' dedication to research and development has resulted in the creation of its Intelligent Fire Suppression System with a unique set of attributes,” said Bas‑Jan Walhof, CEO of Aqua+.

“After performing our own fire tests on the technology and visiting the team’s state-of-the-art facility in London, we decided we would like to join Plumis on their journey. Our investment underscores our commitment to advancing the way we protect lives and property.”

William Makant, Plumis CEO, added: “We are excited to see the traditional fire sprinkler industry embracing this technology and to be working with Aqua+ on this next phase of our growth – especially as we prepare to launch more advanced and life-saving technologies in the coming months.

“This is an incredible opportunity for our team. The situations which require active fire suppression vary significantly from building type, water supply, retrofit or new build, and even the type of application. By adding Automist to its portfolio, Aqua+’s will be able to offer a wide range of solutions that can tackle the ever-changing fire safety challenges.”
