Idex Corp has completed its acquisition of Abel Pumps LP from Hillenbrand Inc.

Abel designs and manufactures highly engineered reciprocating positive displacement pumps for end markets including mining, marine, power, water, wastewater and other general industries. The company’s diaphragm and high-pressure piston pumps serve harsh, demanding applications involving abrasive or corrosive substances and fluids with high solids content.

Abel has an administration office and manufacturing plant in Büchen, Germany, and sales and service locations in Madrid, Spain and Pittsburgh, USA.

“We welcome Abel and its employees worldwide to the Idex family of businesses. We look forward to their expertise complementing the longstanding strength Idex has in pump and valve manufacturing,” said Idex CEO and president Eric Ashleman.

Abel is now part of Idex’s Fluid and Metering Technologies segment.
