The name change follows the acquisition of Obart Pumps by Tsurumi (Europe) GmbH in 2020.
Matthew Hill, managing director of Tsurumi Pumps UK Ltd, said: “Following the acquisition in 2020, it is a natural step forward for us to become known as Tsurumi Pumps UK Ltd so we form part of a single brand with a single vision.
Tsurumi Pumps UK Ltd will continue to operate from its existing head office and warehouse in Maidstone, Kent.
“All our existing products and brands will remain unchanged. We will continue to offer Tsurumi, Speroni, APP, Honda, Faes and Umbra products alongside our own trusted Fit&Flow, DryMax and Floodmate product ranges,” said Hill.
The company has been a Tsurumi distributor since 1975 and the firm’s pumps are used widely across construction, civil engineering, wastewater treatment, tunnelling and domestic applications.
Hill’s father John first discovered Tsurumi pumps at a trade show in America in 1974, when he purchased Tsurumi’s compact single phase 110V pumps. His company was the first to rent out lightweight, portable submersibles in the UK and he soon went on to selling them through Obart Pumps to other hire companies.
Tsurumi Pumps UK is the sole supplier of Tsurumi pumps in the UK market.
