NEW YORK - Dover Corp. announced that its Dover Resources subsidiary has completed the acquisition of Almatec GmbH, Europe's premier manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm pumps. Based in Düsseldorf, Germany, Almatec GmbH will become a subsidiary of Wilden Pump and Engineering, LLC, of Grand Terrace, California. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"With virtually no product or distribution overlap, our two companies can leverage individual strengths for optimum growth and efficiency," said John D. Allen, president & COO of Wilden Pump. "Almatec's location is ideal to take advantage of global sourcing in Eastern Europe," added Bruce J. Bartells, CEO of Wilden Pump.

Within Dover Resources, the new Fluid Solutions Group has been created, consisting of Blackmer, a world leader in mobile transport and positive-displacement pumps; RPA Process Technologies, a leading manufacturer of liquid filters; and Wilden Pump, one of the world's largest manufacturers of air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, which now will include Almatec.
