Group CEO Fulco Vrooland says: “Our pump line is the beating heart of our dredgers. The past years we have invested heavily in our R&D, Pump Service Team, as well as maintaining a significant stock of wear parts in the Netherlands and the USA, and most recently in the SMRT Warehouse Management System, allowing our customers to check availability and then order directly online. By teaming up with Thomas and Olaf we are excited to branch out to other industries with this first-class product and services.” To which Thomas Schaefer adds: “We will be offering a wide range of pumping solutions and are happy to add the iPump line to our portfolio, especially for the larger applications. We have ambitious plans and continue talks with ROHR-IDRECO to also partner with us in maintaining a stock of other pump brands, to serve the existing replacement market.”
