Company pumped about global excellence award

Home Uncategorised Company pumped about global excellence award

Netherlands-based Verder Group has won the Global Business Excellence Award for Outstanding New Product/Service for Verderflex Dura 65 (D65) peristaltic pump.

In a statement, the company quoted the judges as hailing the invention as “the first real development in hose pump technology since the arrival of the high-pressure hose”.

They went on to say: “The D65 pump offers high performance and takes up to 70% less space. Hose changes are fast and easy with the unique connection system. Verder has come up with an easy-to-use and control, robust pump that can be used in a wide range of industries for heavy duty operations.”

Colin Heathfield, Product Manager for Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps, said winning this award was important to Verder because it supports the company’s mantra of trying to offer a solution to customers and being flexible in terms of development to meet global needs and specifications.

He added that 25% of Verder’s staff in the UK are now dedicated research and development professionals, supported by the global team.

“From the access hatch to clean the track, through to the lifting eye on the front plate to make the unit safer to work on, we have tried to address the small points that make a difference whilst still trying to maintain a balance between product specification and value for money. Its success as a good value pump for the customer can be reinforced by the number of units going through our system,” Heathfield said.

Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa said the Verderflex Dura 65 hose pump was launched amidst the pandemic last year. “It replaced the popular Verderflex VF65, while boasting 20% more flow and 20% longer hose life. This award is a testament to the quality of our products, but also our company’s commitment to innovation and excellence.”
