Both companies specialise in technologies for mechanical cleaning and treatment of wastewater.

“Thanks to the acquisitions, we can offer our customers an even wider range of solutions,” said Oliver Hermes, president and CEO of the Wilo Group. “We are consistently following our strategic development from an expert for heating applications to a holistic solutions provider for all applications in the transport, use and treatment of water and wastewater.”

The two companies will be integrated into Wilo’s Water Treatment Strategic Business Unit (SBU).

However, FSM Frankenberger and WSM Walower remain independent and will continue to be run by local managers.

“Wilo’s market and application expertise and the two companies’ special solutions are the ideal combination to exploit new opportunities in existing business segments and collectively develop new markets,” said Dr Patrick Niehr, a member of the executive board and chief change officer of the Wilo Group.
