Wanner International’s new technical centre of excellence in industrial pump development has opened.
The purpose-built facility enables the UK-based company to deliver enhanced service capabilities including system design and custom pump builds and performance testing.
The company has invested in this 5,000ft2 facility to increase capacity to meet the growing global demand for its services, to take its Hydra-Cell® pump on to the next level of technical innovation.
This will further strengthen the company’s support to its customers and partners in Europe, India, Middle East, Australia, Africa, Russia and surrounding countries including Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
As well as the main high volume manufacturing plant in the US, this purpose-built facility enables the company to build small volume customised pumps, pump skids (a set including a driver such as an electric motor or diesel engine mounted on a common steel base), testing to meet customer specifications as well as hosting training workshops - either on-site or via on-line video.
Paul Davis, Wanner International’s managing director said: “We are very pleased to have seen growth in sales, considering the tough 18 months we have all experienced. It is great to know that the additional advantages of the Hydra-Cell® seal-less pumps over many other pump technologies has made a real difference in improving the processes of our oil and gas customers and other industries.
“In addition, the pumps’ unique features create real benefits as the industry faces increased challenges to protect the environment.
“With hundreds of thousands of pumps in service, the Wanner International team and its global partners have worked incredibly hard, especially through the pandemic crisis, to continue offering support and solutions to existing clients, whether that be via our online technical support or just having a real human being on the other end of the phone.”
