Ampco Pumps GmbH in Herxheim, Germany, is a hundred percent subsidiary of Ampco Pumps Company in Milwaukee, USA. Founded in 1948, Ampco Pumps has since established itself as a pump manufacturer in various markets. Initially Ampco was involved mainly in industrial and marine applications in wastewater treatment and seawater desalination plants, but the trend towards expanding into the sanitary industry was set as early as 1957 with the first generation of CIP pumps. Today, this sector accounts for more than 70 % of Ampco’s business.
Currently Ampco Pumps is setting new impulses and high standards with the successful circumferential piston pumps and rotary lobe pumps. Many of the biggest names in the industry are listed in the company’s base of satisfied customers. In addition to the two series of centrifugal pumps and the side channel pumps, Ampco continues to develop its product portfolio with shear blenders for mixing and homogenizing and further powder mixing technology is planned for the near future.
