Tsurumi making its mark after 40 years
What started as a small operation in Düsseldorf, Germany, gradually expanded internationally. Today Tsurumi is considered one of the global market leaders.
Managing director Daniel Weippert attributed the success to two factors on which no compromises are made - robust pumps and excellent service.
He said: "Stronger for longer is, therefore, the slogan of the company, which exclusively builds dewatering and sewage pumps for building construction and civil engineering, mining and tunnelling as well as for landscaping, municipal services and fire brigades.”
Almost all its pumps have a modular design with many identical parts.
They can be serviced by the customer using standard tools in addition to technical refinements such as the forced lubrication of the shaft developed by Tsurumi.
Tsurumi also does not manufacture to order, but delivers from stock - most of the 700 or so EU pump models can be on their way to the customer within 24 hours.
These include powerhouses weighing several tonnes with outputs of up to 30 m3/min or with a 216 m delivery head.
"Anyone who deals with water can rely on Tsurumi," emphasised Weippert.
“In fact, there is hardly a challenging project without Tsurumi pumps. Their quality is often pushed to its limits. Recently, a pump was serviced for the first time - it had previously run for a total of 20,000 hours without any maintenance.”
