MELROSE PARK, IL, June 3, 2009 -- Wilo is pleased to announce that it has unified its two U.S. companies, Wilo USA LLC and Wilo EMU USA LLC, into a single organization that will do business under the name Wilo USA LLC. Effective June 1, Thomasville, Georgia-based Wilo EMU USA LLC and Melrose Park, Illinois-based Wilo USA LLC are united throughout all phases of operation, from sales through manufacturing.

The unification of the two companies enhances customer service by allowing customers to access more easily the full product line -- from the HVAC-related circulator pumps and water supply pumps to submersible sewage pumps and submersible mixers -- through a single Wilo contact.

Mike Easterley, CEO and President of the new Wilo USA organization, explained, "We are maximizing the capabilities of all of our resources in the U.S. for the benefit of our customers. This reorganization will facilitate our dramatic growth in the U.S. and accelerate the exchange of timely information to everyone in the industry," he added.

All production and assembly for the U.S. market will be located at the new fully-equipped Thomasville, Georgia facility, which will be headed up by Terry Rouse. The sales efforts will be headed up by Mark Dagostino, Vice President of Sales for all Wilo products based out of the Melrose Park, Illinois office.

"Wilo has become an important part of the U.S. marketplace, and we are proud to be able to bring the benefits of Wilo technology to each and every customer and to do so in a manner that is convenient, quick and easy for all," said Mike Easterley. "We wish to thank our valued U.S. customers that have made this growth possible."

Wilo USA offers a complete line of pumps and pump systems from HVAC-related circulator pumps and water supply pumps to submersible sewage pumps and submersible mixers.
