AxFlow strengthens product portfolio and service operation in Austria
AxFlow Austria is strengthening its service offering with the acquisition of Tuma Pumpensysteme GmbH, a family-owned pump distribution and service company, specialised in vacuum-, centrifugal- and positive displacement pumps with main customers in engineering, food & beverage, pharma and chemicals.
Since in 1950, Tuma Pumpensysteme has enjoyed a sound growth in the sales, installation, commissioning, customization and repair of predominantly vacuum and centrifugal pumps. Located in Vienna, Tuma Pumpensysteme serves the market from its modern warehouse and workshop equipped with one of Austria’s very few test stations for vacuum pumps.
“The acquisition of Tuma Pumpensysteme rises AxFlow’s profile as a complete pump company and makes us an attractive partner for the Austrian customers, “says Ole Weiner, CEO, AxFlow Holding.
“Tuma’s skilled sales and service engineers bring to us much needed pump service and systems building competences,” says Ing. Andreas Lippitsch, Managing Director, AxFlow GesmbH. “We in turn bring to the table a wide product range in positive displacement pumps and decades of experience in fluid handling applications in food and beverage, pharma, pulp and paper and other processing industries. I’m certain that both Tuma’s and AxFlow’s customers in Austria will enjoy the benefits of our joined forces.”
Welcoming the acquisition, Mr. Robert Mittinger, Managing Director and part-owner of Tuma Pumpensysteme said: “We are excited to become a part of AxFlow. Tuma has a strong reputation and footprint on the Austrian market, and AxFlow will help to strengthen that position.”
