Pump Supplies acquires PD Pumps

Pump Supplies, the owner and operator of the UK’s largest hire fleet of electric submersible pumps and accessories, has acquired Stockport-based PD Pumps Ltd.

PD Pumps is a key pump distribution business for Robot and Landustrie pumps in the UK and Ireland and specialises in the supply of submersible pumps and dry installed pumps. Its product range complements Pump Supplies’ existing business as the country’s leading distributor of Flygt pumps and supplier of electric submersible pumps for a wide range of industry sectors and applications. Pump Supplies is part of Lakers AB Group which was acquired by Vestum AB last year.

PD Pumps will retain its name and brand identity following the sale, but the operation and its staff members will move into Pump Supplies’ existing operation in Winsford, also in Cheshire.

Commenting, Pump Supplies’ managing director, Peter Lewington, said:

“PD Pumps is well known for its submersible pumps and is well regarded for both its utility and industrial wastewater treatment applications. It’s a natural fit into the Pump Supplies business. The partnership presents huge opportunities to expand our business further and we’re all excited about the future.”

Peter Down, owner of PD Pumps, adds:

“The acquisition is great news for the future of PD Pumps so it can continue to move forward and flourish.”
