Our Story

    In 1954, Robert C. Wolf developed the first metal diaphragm compressor in the US and founded Pressure Products Industries. He then founded Fluitron in 1976 and extended the company’s range of high-pressure equipment. Fluitron earned a proven track record of developing safe and reliable solutions for hydrogen gas handling.

    ARA Partners acquired Fluitron in 2021 as the first step in building a hydrogen platform to address the energy transition. ARA Partners then acquired Bethlehem Hydrogen, a company established by Tom Joseph in 2009 with offices in the US and Kerala, India, to provide manufacturing solutions across the hydrogen refueling system. The addition of Bethlehem Hydrogen to Fluitron added valuable business expertise in the hydrogen field and key systems packaging capability.

    In the first quarter of 2023, Fluitron moved into a 150,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Hatboro, Pennsylvania. This new facility allows Fluitron to up-scale our end-to-end business processes to ensure we exceed our customers’ expectations in the areas of delivery, quality, and pricing.
