Grundfos has acquired US-based Yeomans Chicago Corporation, which specialises in pumps for wastewater.
Yeomans, which has been in operation for more than a hundred years, sells products under the Yeomans Pump, Chicago Pump and Morris Pumps brands and focuses primarily on the wastewater and sewage markets. It will become part of Grundfos’ North American operations and be overseen by Grundfos’ Peerless group based in Indianapolis, USA.
“We are very pleased that Yeomans Chicago Corporation is now part of the Grundfos Group,” said Soren Sorensen, group executive vice president and chairman of the board of Grundfos North America. “Grundfos is confident in the potential of the North American pump market and the last years’ significant organic growth has proven to us that there is much more to achieve.” The company said that with the acquisition it aims to become a leading player in the municipal water and wastewater business in North America within the coming years.
