Sulzer acquires ABS Pumps
In 2010 the ABS Pump Company came up for sale and Sulzer – aware that waste water pumping was a big hole in their range – acquired them.
Interestingly enough prior to the purchase, the Research and Design division (part of the Pumps Division) did a lot of work designing wastewater pumps and testing for a couple of very large and well known existing wastewater pump manufacturers (who shall remain nameless!).
