Autoclude Pumps joins Verder Limited

Autoclude Pumps is now a division of Verder Limited, a move that is not only beneficial to both companies but also to its customers. Andries Verder, CEO of the Verder Group, says: "With virtually no product overlap, the Autoclude brand represents an attractive complement to the products in our liquids division." The combined attributes of these two companies strengthen the position of both in the market for peristaltic pumps.

Autoclude brings considerable manufacturing aptitude to the Verder Group. In its new manufacturing unit in Basildon, Essex, the company manufactures three ranges of peristaltic pumps. These are aimed at the general industrial, scientific and OEM markets, and it is the latter range for which the company is best known. Indeed, more than 70 per cent of these pumps are now destined for export.

Autoclude-Verder also differentiates itself by the design and manufacture of special pumps. Its applications knowledge and production investment provides a useful resource for OEMs and systems integrators alike to specify pumps with non-standard characteristics.

Lean manufacturing

Best manufacturing practices are assured at the Basildon factory thanks to the adoption of proven business tools and techniques for lean manufacturing. Autoclude-Verder is implementing programmes to bring sustained order and efficiency to the workplace and the initiative includes process improvement through kaizen, value-stream mapping and quality control.

Results have been evidenced by a reduction in lead time, assured quality, the generation of less waste and improved operational efficiency. The success of these procedures has led to them being replicated in other Verder manufacturing sites.

Commenting on Autoclude now being part of the Verder Group, General Manager John Watkins said: "Our customers have the assurance of knowing we now have corporate stability and even greater R&D resources. They also have access to the single source supply of the most comprehensive range of industrial pumps to suit every application and budget."
