Verder acquires German peristaltic pump maker Ponndorf

Kassel-headquartered Ponndorf has been producing pumps since 1953. The company manufactures a range of hose pumps as well as additional individual pump and control solutions.

“With this acquisition, we further strengthen our position as a leading solutions provider for peristaltic hose and tube pumps and enhances its global market position for a wide range of industries,” said John Hoorneman, managing director of Verder Liquids BV. “Ponndorf has a strong portfolio of dry running and lubricated peristaltic pumps, as well as an excellent customer base and manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to combining our research and applications expertise with Ponndorf to expand our global reach in the peristaltic pump market.”

“The new portfolio complements Verder’s peristaltic pump line, and bolsters our footprint in the global peristaltic pump market,” said Kenneth McCartney, managing director of Verderflex peristaltic pump production.

Verder will integrate the Ponndorf pumps in the Verderflex range of peristaltic pumps but Ponndorf Gerätetechnik will continue to serve its own dealer network with the existing Ponndorf branded pumps. Ponndorf director Till Völker will remain active in the company.

The Verder Liquids Division manufactures and distributes a wide range of positive displacement pumps. Brands include Verderflex, Verderair, Verdermag Global, Verderhus, Verdermix and Verderdos.
