Commenting on the acquisition, Paul Van Der Rest, CEO Rubix in the Benelux & Nordics, said: “I am delighted to welcome my new colleagues from Bedu Pompen to the Rubix family. This acquisition will further develop our capabilities in the flow category, building on our earlier acquisitions of EFC and Geeve. With its strong presence in the industrial and wastewater sectors, it’s a natural extension of the offer we take to our existing customer base for industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul.”

Marco and Ron added: “This agreement is a great opportunity for us to continue our development and build on our successful track record.
