Denmark’s Iron Pump A/S has bought Danish pump manufacturer Ellehammer A/S and is merging their operations.

Glostrup-based Ellehammer manufactures water fire pumps while Søborg-headquartered Iron Pump supplies ballast and cooling pumps. The Ellehammer brand also covers ejectors, with more than 75000 installed units mainly in the maritime sector.

The two companies have partnered closely for many years.

The merger will see Ellehammer’s activities move to Iron Pump’s development and production facilities in Søborg. Each of the companies will deal with their own specialties and Ellehammer will retain its independent brand.

“We’re combining the best from two fields – Iron Pump with our expertise within cooling and ballast pumps and Ellehammer’s unique range of pumps for efficient fire fighting. Our two Danish companies have proud traditions, and I’m pleased that all activities will remain Danish-owned,” said Iron Pump CEO Anders Frimodt-Møller.

“The merger underlines our competences within exciting and growing fields of business, and, in the years ahead, we’ll exploit our opportunities for expanding markets and developing products worldwide.”
