Dover Corp. Establishes Pump Solutions Group
April 10, 2008
New York-based Dover Corp. has established a Pump Solutions Group within its Fluid Solutions platform. The Pump Solutions Group joins the major brands, Wilden and Blackmer, with Almatec, Mouvex and Griswold to form a cohesive pump organization with a variety of pump technologies generating more than $300 million in annualized revenue.
PSG's strategy is to leverage each company's strong brand recognition while taking advantage of synergies within the group's distribution, manufacturing footprint and supply chains. It also expects to leverage best practices and streamline back-office support functions. The group will look to improve upon its geographic sales mix, which is now over 50% international.
The Pump Solutions Group increases our distributor offerings and provides a more comprehensive solution for our customer's fluid handling requirements," said John D. Allen, the Group's newly appointed President, who formally served as president of Wilden.
The Pump Solutions Group features the manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm pumps (Wilden) and a provider of sliding vane pumps (Blackmer). Other brands within PSG include Almatec, a provider of air-operated double diaphragm pumps for biomedical, chemical, food grade and electronics markets; Mouvex, a maker of eccentric disc pumps used in an array of applications; and Griswold, an ANSI centrifugal pump manufacturer. The Pump Solutions Group has plants in California, Michigan and Georgia as well as international facilities in Germany, China, India, France and the Czech Republic.
Dover Corporation, with more than $7 billion in annualized revenues, is a global portfolio of manufacturing companies providing components and equipment, specialty systems and support services for a variety of applications in the industrial products, engineered systems, fluid management and electronic technologies markets.
