Allweiler Pump Opens Office In United States

Allweiler International A.G., one of Germany's largest pump manufacturers, has announced the establishment of Allweiler Pump Inc. to market and service two lines of positive displacement pumps in the United States and Canada. The new corporation, headquartered in the Chicago area at 1801G Hicks Road, Rolling Meadows, 111. 60008, will be selling the Allweiler two-screw and three-screw pump lines.

"The market for screw pumps has demonstrated a definite need to have an additional source for this type of equipment," stated Larry R. Shanley, chief executive and operating officer. "Allweiler is best equipped to meet this need and provide quality products and service." Mr. Shanley brings many years of pump experience to the new corporation. Mr. Shanley had national responsibilities as industrial sales manager with the Fluid Handling Division of ITT, and as product sales manager for Roper Pump Co.

The Allweiler screw pumps are known worldwide in the marine, chemical and petrochemical industries.

The three-screw pump design finds ready acceptance in the compressor industry for lube and seal oil application, fuel oil burner/transfer applications, and hydraulic applications. The twoscrew pump design is applicable to a wide range of corrosive and contaminated fluids, as well as fluids with viscosities to 4,500,000 SSU. Both lines of pumps are available with cast iron, nodular and steel case.

A stocking distributor network is being developed throughout the U.S. and Canada. Allweiler Pump Inc. will establish a manufacturing plant in the near future.
