Founded in September 1969 as a small trade operation, in 2019 Pumpenfabrik Wangen GmbH is now a globally operating company with its headquarters, development and production site in Wangen in the Allgäu region of Germany.
“Wangen pumps and pump components enjoy regional, national and international repute and are used on every continent across the globe. We can look back with satisfaction at our growth over the first 50 years. Pumpenfabrik Wangen has continually grown from being a niche provider in the agricultural sector to becoming a global supplier of progressing cavity pumps and twin screw pumps for a wide range of different segments. Our engineering services combined with a desire for quality and serious commitment throughout all departments and by all employees have enabled our growth and form the basis for future success on the global market and in the most diverse market segments,” explains the company’s management.
The first pumps to be built, Types 80 A and B, were based on an ingenious idea, as the agricultural pump was placed under a slurry tank and so needed significantly less space than before. Wangen got a foot in the international market in the early 70s. The company’s headquarters in Germany was extended and a further important step towards internationalisation and becoming a global player was taken with the establishment of Wangen America Inc. in 2014. With a current workforce of 240, sales partners world-wide and a broad-based range of pumps for sectors, including
- sewage treatment and environmental technology,
- chemicals and
the company is looking optimistically towards the future in 2019.
