PLEUGER celebrates 95 years

 PLEUGER, a pioneer in the manufacture of submersible motors and pumps, is celebrating its 95th anniversary this 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 4 July. 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 utilize our unique PLEUGER expertise for complex projects and water applications around the globe.”  Michael Flacks is also expected to attend the anniversary celebrations and will open the event in person.

PLEUGER is a long-standing pioneer in developing, producing, and manufacturing submersible motors, pumps, thrusters, plunger pumps, and related services. The company’s mostly customized solutions are in demand worldwide, primarily from companies in conventional and renewable energy, mining, water management, and industrial processing.

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 with the highest level of vertical integration. However, standard designs are also available in materials ranging from grey cast iron to super duplex.

For example, the Alster fountain in Hamburg is produced with an 8-inch submersible motor pump from PLEUGER. PLEUGER has been involved in this task since 1987, ensuring smooth operation and constant optimization of energy consumption. The pump has been powered by an energy-efficient permanent magnet motor for several years now.

At the beginning of 2024, PLEUGER acquired AVI International in the USA, a company specializing in pump service, to optimize service for customers in the United States and Canada. Connecticut’s new assembly and service location 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 US investor Michael 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 over 7,000 employees, is known for its fast and effective solutions in challenging business situations.
