United Rentals expands pump offering in Europe
By Belinda Smart09 November 2021
United Rentals’ European business is expanding its product offering with the addition of electric submersible pumps and further types of diesel and electric centrifugal pumps.
The company said its pump product line was designed for safety, versatility and “plug and play” compatibility and confirmed “a full range of diesel and electric centrifugal pumps in standard and industrial ranges” will be available.
The new offering follow United Rentals Europe’s recent rebranding from BakerCorp and the introduction of a fleet of power equipment, including standard and industrial diesel generators. BakerCorp was acquired by United Rentals in 2018.
Overall the range will include pumps that deliver both lower and higher pressure and the majority will be equipped with telemetry, emergency stop switches and automatic level controls for remote monitoring.
Additional diesel and electric centrifugal pumps from Pioneer Pump, which feature the latest emission-compliant Stage V diesel engines, will be added over the coming months.
Meanwhile a new submersible pump range from BBA will form part of the fleet, and is currently available in three versions for clear water, waste water and sewage water, the latter two equipped with a frame designed for easy lifting, installation, transport and storage.
Jurgen Verschoor, Region Vice President of United Rentals Europe, said, “We are continuing our plans for growth by not only adding new initiatives like our generator range but also building on our existing product lines to service our customers with expanded solutions under one powerful umbrella.”
Parent company United Rentals, Inc. is the largest equipment rental company in the world and has a network of 1,278 rental locations in North America, 11 in Europe, 28 in Australia and 18 in New Zealand.
