AxFlow Italy expands its’ pumps and mixers repair services by the acquisition of RPT S.r.l.

AxFlow Italy announces completion of an acquisition of RPT S.r.l.  - experts in the overhaul and technical revision of centrifugal and volumetric pumps as well as industrial mixers.

RPT is a family-owned company, located in Milan/Genoa region. Their service engineers operate both on-site as well as from RPT’s modern workshop premises in Villalvernia.

 “We have been looking for a suitable and successful service company with a strong local market position in the region for a long time,” says Gabriele Tanzi-Mira, Managing Director of AxFlow Italy, and continues, “Acquiring RPT strengthens AxFlow’s presence in the important North-western region of Italy and enables us to offer our customers – especially in the chemical and petrochemical sector – a high-quality maintenance and refurbishment with short lead times.”

Since the establishment of RPT back in 2002, the company has seen a growing need for their technical services. By joining AxFlow RPT will have the necessary resources to expand their business in terms of equipment and technical know-how and by gaining new customers already served by AxFlow.

Mr Enrico Chiggio, the founder and majority owner of RPT comments on the acquisition, “It was a well-thought-out decision and now we’re looking forward to strengthening the service business further together with AxFlow.”
