The Pump Solutions Group (PSG™), a member of the New York-based Dover Corp.’s Fluid Management market segment and part of its Fluid Solutions platform, was recently presented the 2010 North American Positive Displacement Pumps Customer Value Enhancement of the Year Award by Frost & Sullivan. The award was presented to PSG Frost & Sullivan’s 2010 Excellence in Industrial Technologies Awards banquet, which was held on April 29 in San Antonio, TX.

“PSG’s integrated business structure encompassing all of Dover’s diverse brands allows the company to function as a single business entity, leveraging its common manufacturing and supply-chain infrastructure into enhanced value for its customers,” said Muthuraman Ramasamy, Frost & Sullivan research analyst. “Its multiple pump technologies, combined with its domain expertise spanning several industry verticals enables Dover to cater to diverse operational requirements of end users.”

Comprised of Dover’s individual pump brands, including Wilden®, Blackmer®, Griswold™, Almatec®, Mouvex® and Neptune™, PSG is currently one of the largest manufacturers of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) and sliding vane pumps. It has facilities across seven distinct locations, including three in the U.S., which helps the organization to ensure prompt customer service and support.

The Industrial Technologies Awards are presented by Frost & Sullivan to companies that have made significant contribution to the manufacturing, automation, logistics, distribution, materials, construction, security and process industries. Award-winners have exhibited success in meeting the needs of their clients in delivering value and innovation while developing world-class companies with strong management teams.

Overall, Dover’s formation of PSG acts as an umbrella group through which end-users can choose from a range of pump technologies. Dover’s strategic acquisitions and subsequent successful integrations of those companies have enabled it to deliver enhanced and continuous value to business owners, making it the worthy recipient of the 2010 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement in the PD pumps market.

“This honor is a reflection on the hard, focused work in which PSG’s six member companies have been engaged,” said Soma Somasundaram, president of Dover Fluid Management. “It is also motivation for us to hopefully receive this award for value enhancement many more times in the years to come.”
