UK: Sussex-based condensate pump manufacturer Aspen Pumps has acquired its German distributor Malessa & Schüller GbR for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Dusseldorf, Malessa & Schüller was founded in 1992 by entrepreneurs, Herbert Malessa and Wolfgang Schüller. The acquisition is seen as a natural development in a trading relationship between the two companies that dates back over 19 years.
In addition to Aspen’s condensate pumps, Malessa & Schüller also distributes Aspen’s Xtra air conditioning installation products and Big Foot roof support systems.
In a letter on the company’s website, director Wolfgang Schüller assured customers that Malessa & Schüller would continue to operate as an independent company, and that the company structure remained the same.
Adrian Thompson, director of Aspen Pumps Limited said: “Malessa & Schüller is a great company with a great reputation. The company is distinguished by excellent customer service and good business.”
