PLEUGER Celebrates 95th Anniversary in July

Published On: June 11, 2024By Categories: Newsline, Pumps and Water Systems

PLEUGER Industries GmbH, a pioneer in the manufacture of submersible motors and pumps, is celebrating its 95th anniversary in July.

Founded in Berlin in 1929, PLEUGER has been based in Hamburg, Germany, since 1945 and in Hamburg Wandsbek since 1951.

The more than 200 employees in Hamburg will celebrate the company’s anniversary with a BBQ on July 4.

Anton Schneerson, CEO of PLEUGER, comments: “I am delighted that we are celebrating the 95th anniversary of PLEUGER, a company that enjoys the highest level of trust among its customers worldwide thanks to its German engineering expertise, fast service and high level of customer satisfaction. Thanks to our motivated colleagues, we will continue to utilise our unique PLEUGER expertise for complex projects and water applications around the globe.”

United States investor Michael Flacks is also expected to attend the anniversary celebrations and will open the event in person.

As each project is considered an individual solution, PLEUGER’s products are highly customized. Submersible pumps and motors from 6 to 50 inches and up to 5 MW are produced by hand to customer specifications. However, standard designs are also available in materials ranging from grey cast iron to super duplex.

At the beginning of 2024, PLEUGER acquired AVI International in the United States, a company specializing in pump service, to optimize service for customers in the United States and Canada. The new assembly and service location in Connecticut now ensures significantly faster processing of pump deliveries and services in North America.

The last few years have seen an important turning point in the company’s 95-year history. After several years of unsuccessful previous owners, the company was taken over by Flacks in 2018, who handed over the management to Anton Schneerson. Instead of just manufacturing pumps, PLEUGER has since developed, built, and marketed complete solutions including accessories, from sensors to control cabinets. Flacksgroup, with a portfolio of more than 3 billion dollars and more than 7000 employees, is known for its fast and effective solutions in challenging business situations.
