N.R. Murphy Ltd Announces New Owners

December 3, 2018 | By Mario Cywinski

After 75 years in business, N.R. Murphy Limited has new owners. Helder Armas has taken over as the new president. Armas is also now co-owner with his wife, Lori Armas, daughter of Norman R. Murphy, the company’s previous owner and its namesake.

“It is an honour to take over a business that has a highly esteemed reputation for dedicated customer service and uncompromising quality,” said Helder Armas. “This is a legacy that I plan to carry on.”

Based in Cambridge, Ontario, the company manufactures dust collectors, fans, and similar equipment for workplaces in many sectors.

“I couldn’t be happier keeping my 75-year-old business in the family,” said Murphy.


The company expects a smooth transition into the new ownership, as it continues to use the same management team, systems, and facility.

“Everyone says they build quality into their products,” said Murphy. “But when your name goes on every single unit you build, you make sure quality is never compromised. It’s my reputation that’s at stake.”
