Dear Visitor,

I am very pleased to welcome you to our newly designed website in our anniversary year 2016.

Pump technology has been our passion and inspiration for 150 years.

That is our motto in this very special year for HERMETIC. We will complete construction of our fifth production hall in Gundelfingen, and we also want to achieve top performance in the field of canned motor technology in 2016. Last year, we succeeded in this respect with the delivery of the largest and heaviest pump ever built by us. A short video on the subject is available here.

We deliberately remain at our head office in Gundelfingen. Our shareholders have made a clear commitment to this location. In addition, the “Made in Germany” quality label still means something in our industry. Thanks to the outstanding expertise and the commitment of all our local staff, we stand out from the international competition for the technology and quality of our products. As a result, we can continue to grow and prosper in Gundelfingen.

Finally, I would like to invite you to the celebration of our company’s 150-year anniversary and the official inauguration of the new hall. This will take place on 24 September 2016 as part of our open house day.


Nicolaus Krämer
Chairman of the Executive Board – CEO
