The acquisition of Chemo-Invest Specialpumpar makes AxFlow AB the largest distributors of positive displacement pumps and fluid handling systems in Sweden.

Announcing the acquisition, AxFlow AB managing director Charlotte Burmester commented: "I strongly believe that by merging the resources and experience of Chemo-Invest into our operation will bring considerable benefits for both companies' existing clients and new business prospects through our combined strengths. Chemo-Invest have complementary product ranges and more than 40 years of experience in the provision of PD pumps especially to the food and pharmaceutical market sectors, where they have been highly successful."

AxFlow's product portfolio is now extended with Hermetic, Waukesha, Lewa, Maag, Richter, Habermann and Schmitt.

The AxFlow Group is the largest distributor of positive displacement pumps, fluid handling systems and related services in Europe, and represents world-leading suppliers. "The acquisition of Chemo-Invest strengthens AxFlow's sales representation in Southern and Western parts of Sweden, with offices in Helsingborg and Gothenburg. It will also provide new opportunities for Chemo-Invest's employees as they become a part of the international AxFlow Group," continues Charlotte Burmester.

Fredrik Sievert, formerly Managing Director of Chemo-Invest Specialpumpar and Product Manager with AxFlow, is equally as enthusiastic about the acquisition commenting: "The combined knowledge and high quality brands that we now have in the new organization, will be of great benefit for our customers due to our possibility to offer the best solution for a wide range of demanding pump applications."
