MERIDEN, Conn., Feb. 16, 2005 -- ABS has highlighted wastewater technology as its core business, introducing a new, targeted organization based on know-how and application expertise.

"ABS offers complete solutions for wastewater applications, integrated with services and extensive process knowledge," said ABS President Peter Aru. Additionally, ABS is a major player in the dewatering, and pulp and paper markets.

Building on its long tradition in wastewater pumps and mixers, ABS has broadened its scope into a complete offering for treatment applications by including expertise in aeration technology, compressors, and control and monitoring. Adding a comprehensive range of services, customers get access to decades of wastewater technology experience.

"From now on, we will present our complete offer under the common brand ABS, and approach the market as one organization," Aru said. "Customers will benefit by obtaining complete process solutions and knowledge from one corporation, when companies like Nopon will be fully integrated into the ABS organization.

"Additionally, the new regional world-wide sales organization set up last year has given positive effects in getting even closer to the market, combining global presence with local strength" he said. "We will now continue building our knowledge base together with our customers, facing new challenges every day. We see that our investments into research, development and long-term partnerships has gained trust and resulted in improved value over time for our customers".

In dewatering, ABS will continue to build on its position in the construction and mining industry. "By introducing a new targeted dewatering organization, we intend to continue growing our presence in the dewatering market, offering application knowledge, high availability and professional services," said Aru.

For the pulp and paper market, ABS established in January this year a new border-less key account organization, ABS Scanpump AB, and re-introduced its well-established brand Scanpump.

"The new, focused pulp and paper organization offers extensive global application knowledge in combination with a strong portfolio of products and services," Aru said. "Offering process pumps and agitators along with complete equipment for industrial effluent handling, makes us a unique solution provider in this market. Pulp & paper customers will also benefit from a new state-of-the-art manufacturing and delivery service that we are setting up in Sweden, to be in full operation by mid-year 2005."
