Germany headquartered Wangen pumps is set acquire the entire hygienic progressing cavity pumps division of Knoll Maschinenbau. The acquisition is set to take effect on 1 April, and will see Wangen expand its hygienic operations.
“We are adding the leading hygienic progressing cavity pump to our strong hygienic twin screw pump range, offering customers in future a considerably wider range from a single supplier,” explains Markus Hofheinz, Managing Director of Pumpenfabrik Wangen.
Recent years have seen Wangen working to expand its hygienic pump range, with launches of the Wangen Hyline and Wangen Twin NG. According to the company the MX range of pumps, which are being acquired from Knoll, will enhance this business area.
According to a statement announcing the acquisition, the modular design of the MX progressing cavity pumps makes them ideal for use in the hygienic field, as well as in the chemical, paint, lacquer and paper industries.
