SPP Pumps invests in Dutch market with new sales role

SPP Pumps, leading manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and systems, has appointed Mark Verweij to the newly created role of European Sales Manager for its specialist Dewatering Division.

Verweij will be based near Rotterdam where he will bring his considerable pump industry and application experience to not only aid sales across Europe and support to distributors, but also to establishing a sales presence in Holland.

“I believe SPP Pumps as a company, with its knowledge of the market in both pumps and engineering, is capable of making a significant impact in Holland” commented Mark. “SPP’s solutions in both water pumps and bespoke projects is unparalleled and I am excited at the prospect of building the business in both Holland and further afield.”

The SPP Pumps Dewatering division offers a range of vacuum-assisted dry self-priming pumps, developed for rental organisations, contractors, utility companies, open cast mines and municipalities - all needing a durable solution.

Versatile, portable and lightweight, the range is deployed around the world for diverse, demanding applications including site dewatering, industrial sludge pumping, tank sediment cleaning, flood relief, wellpointing, and sewage over-pumping.

Duncan Jackson is head of SPP Pumps Dewatering Division and explains the company strategy behind the new appointment: “Holland has a lot of land that is below sea level so there is a market here that we want to focus on. Mark is an ideal fit to lead our sales strategy in Holland as he has great experience in the area. ”
