Cardo Pump and ABS merge.
CARDO PUMP AND ABS MERGE. Cardo Pump, Malmo, Sweden will join forces with ABS, merging the two organizations and offering a new strategy for its PUMPEX operations. ABS and PUMPEX wastewater pumps will be merged and offered in two versions under the common brand ABS. In dewatering, the two separate product lines and product brands will remain unchanged. The two current product lines of submersible sewage pumps will be marketed in two versions--one for "high specification" applications and another for "lower specification" projects. The "high spec" version will offer all main features of the existing PUMPEX range as well as the major benefits of the ABS wastewater pumps. The design release of the combined product range will take place during the spring, with production release by autumn 2005. PUMPEX wastewater pumps will be available up to December 2005.
