The Verder Group has purchased the Jabsco rotary lobe pump product line from Xylem Inc.
The acquisition strengthens Verder’s position in hygienic pumps for pharmaceutical and food and beverage applications.
During a transition period, the products will be marketed under the “Jabsco by Packo” brand. Packo is the main hygienic brand of the Verder Liquids pumps division and includes centrifugal, twin-screw and lobe pumps.
Verder, a Dutch, family-owned business, says that adding extra footprint in the market, expanding the portfolio, increasing the level of hygienic knowledge and intensifying its focus on the hygienic market, will allow the company to further increase penetration in these expanding markets.
“The group is excited to add the Jabsco lobe pumps to the offering of Verder Liquids into the hygienic market,” said Andries Verder, CEO of the Verder Group. “Jabsco is a very well-known and established name in the market with a highly loyal customer base and adding the lobe pump product line will fortify our position as a hygienic pump specialist.”
Xylem is keeping all of its other Jabsco product lines and technologies.
