Two companies have been working closely together since 1988

Allpa Marine Equipment, a Dutch wholesaler with branches in the Netherlands and Germany, is celebrating its 30-year working partnership with SPX Flow (formerly Johnson Pump), having served as one of its key distributors for the last three decades.

SPX Flow’s Johnson Pump Marine is a leading manufacturer of pumps for marine use, with almost 50 years of marine pump experience. The company started its cooperation with Allpa in 1988.

Robin Blank, key account manager for Johnson Pump Marine, says: “I expect a distributor to be professional and have a thorough understanding of our products. They also need strong local market knowledge to be able to find new opportunities. Allpa has been very good at servicing the market, delivering the full package to their customers.”

Established by Pim Rutgers in 1971, Allpa has been owned by Mark Rutgers since 2000. Last month the company reported a positive first half of the year, with sales up 5% on the same period in 2017.
