The British distributor Obart from Maidstone in Kent now trades as Tsurumi Pumps UK. This means that the Japanese manufacturer now has six sales companies in Europe. This was announced by Tsurumi’s European headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany. The change of name took place following Tsurumi’s entry as a majority shareholder in the dealer in 2020.
Since 1972, Obart has been supplying the United Kingdom with pumps for dewatering and sewage treatment. Barely three years later, the first Japanese pumps were added to the supply and rental programme. Matthew Hill, Managing Director at Tsurumi Pumps UK, said that the units had become popular due to their high performance, reliability, and ease of maintenance. The high hydraulic-energy efficiency, the biodegradable lubricating oil and the new options for remote monitoring and control of the entire water logistics are further aspects. They form the basis for the success of the brand with the blue water vortex in the logo.
With Tsurumi Pumps UK, Tsurumi Europe now runs six subsidiaries. The manufacturer is also present in Belgium, Germany, France, Sweden, and Spain. In addition, there is a dense network with many hundreds of dealers and service points. Tsurumi is considered the world’s largest manufacturer of dewatering pumps for the construction industry. Since its foundation in 1924, the company with its European headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, has specialized exclusively in technologies for water utilization.
