Pump House acquired by DiversiTech
USA: UK-based condensate pump and ancillary product supplier Pump House has been acquired by US supplier DiversiTech Corp.
Pump House will retain its name and primary focus on serving the European market. The acquisition is seen as formally solidifying Pump House and DiversiTech’s long-standing partnership, which was created through a joint venture established in 2006.
Pump House sells more than 1,500 products to national and independent distributors, wholesalers and OEMs across five major sectors: air conditioning, refrigeration, boiler, renewables and support systems.
Founded in 2001, Pump House has three warehouse facilities in Nottingham and serves customers in many European countries, the USA, the Middle East and Australia.
“Bringing Pump House into the DiversiTech family makes perfect sense and is a natural progression based on our long-standing partnership,” said DiversiTech chief sales and marketing officer Bud Sjogren. “We see continued opportunity in the European market, and this acquisition assists us in capitalising on those opportunities. As a result of the merger, both companies will be expanding their product portfolios with the goal of providing our customers a compelling one-stop-shop offering. This is in keeping with our desire to help our many customers simplify the way they work.”
“We are excited to be a part of the DiversiTech family,” said Pump House managing director Dave Bass. “DiversiTech’s depth of resources will enable us to continue our growth while bringing more value and support to our customers than ever before.”
The purchase of Pump House follows DiversiTech’s recent acquisition of Cliplight Manufacturing and its Super Seal family of brands.
