The Düchting Pumpen Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG took over the Habermann Mineral Systems GmbH on January 1, 2018. The Habermann Mineral Systems (HMS) was a specialist for the design and manufacture of suction dredges and solids pumps for the sand and gravel industry, also based in Witten. With the takeover the established brand “Habermann Suction Dredger” was integrated into the Düchting umbrella brand and will be continued as the “Habermann Suction Dredger by Düchting”. In 2015, Düchting had already adopted the single-stage centrifugal pump program and incorporated the robust features of the world-famous “suction dredger pumps” into the conception of its own series, the highly wear-resistant WRX series for abrasive conveyed goods.
Existing and future customers also benefit from the international Düchting network. With immediate effect, partners in over 50 countries all over the world will be successively trained in the suction dredger technology, guaranteeing excellent on-site assembly and maintenance services as well as simplified communication with the engineering specialists at the German headquarters, in the future. Currently, engineering work focusses on the further development of the previous suction dredger design to adapt it to the versatile demands of the global market.
