The company history of Zehnder Pumps

Growth and innovation by continuity

Throughout Europe Zehnder Pumps are a sign of longevity and quality. In particular the entrepreneurial vision of the company founder Jürgen Zehnder has made Zehnder Pumps the well-known specialist for pump technology and sewage solutions that it is today. In this manner the company was one of the first to put an innovative sewage lifting unit with plastic collecting tank on the market. Furthermore he laid the foundation stone for growth by investments. The whole team was involved in the development of new products and the improvement of product quality. This continuity is the guarantor that brand products from Zehnder Pumps enjoy an excellent reputation in Germany, neighbouring countries and all over Europe.
