With 570 employees and sales of 175 MEUR, AxFlow is today one of the leading distributors of high quality industrial fluid handling equipment in Europe and in South Africa. AxFlow established operations in Switzerland in 2001 and with the addition of W. Moser significantly extends its market presence.

W. Moser AG has for more than 30 years been representing leading international manufacturers of industrial pumps and cooling towers in Switzerland. Headquartered in Winterthur, W. Moser provides products, spare parts and accessories to customers throughout the country from its warehouse and central repair shop. In recent years, on-site repair and maintenance services have also become increasingly important.

”W. Moser is a solid, well-respected provider of industrial fluid handling equipment, cooling systems and related services to the pharmaceutical, chemical and general industry in Switzerland. The company has a strong market position in positive displacement pumps, especially AODD pumps from Sandpiper, Warren Rupp IDEX. Similarly, AxFlow in Switzerland has built a very strong product offering towards the food and beverage industry.

Together we strengthen our offering to the Swiss market significantly. W. Moser is a strategically important addition to our business and one that fits very well into the overall growth ambitions of AxFlow in Europe”
