Varisco’s pumps are typically used to remove unwanted water or other liquids in the construction, mining, and oil and gas industries. They are also used in industrial process plants and for flood emergency services.

Founded in 1932, Varisco is based in Padua near Venice and employs around 135 people.
 
“The pump business is a focused growth segment for us,” said Andrew Walker, president of Atlas Copco’s Construction Technique business area. “Varisco’s outstanding products and customer base make this an attractive acquisition.”
 
Varisco will become part of the Portable Energy division in Atlas Copco’s Construction Technique business area.
