Bare shaft pumps are brought to the UK, where they are customised to specification. This includes the fitting of seals, local manufacture of drive assemblies for vertical sump pumps, fabrication of baseplates for horizontal units and assembly to UK procured motors and couplings. The complete customised pumps are then shipped to the final customer.
