Autoclude brings unique qualities to Verder

Autoclude Pumps is now a division of Verder Limited, and trading as Verderflex Tube Pumps. "With virtually no product overlap, the Autoclude brand represents an attractive complement to the products in our liquids division," said Andries Verder, CEO of the Verder Group. The combined attributes of these two companies strengthens the position of both in the forefront of the peristaltic pump market.

The Autoclude business brings considerable manufacturing aptitude to the Verder Group. In its brand new manufacturing unit in Basildon, Essex, the company manufactures three ranges of peristaltic pumps. These are aimed at the general industrial, the scientific and the OEM markets. And it is the latter range for which the company is now world-renowned. Indeed more than 70% of these pumps are now destined for export.

Verderflex Tube Pumps also differentiates itself by the design and manufacture of special pumps.  Its applications knowledge and production investment provides a unique resource for OEMs and systems integrators alike to specify pumps with non standard characteristics.

Best manufacturing practices are assured at the Basildon factory thanks to the adoption of proven business tools and techniques for lean manufacturing.  Verderflex Tube Pumps has implemented programmes to bring sustained order and efficiency to the workplace and the initiative includes process improvement through kaizen, value-stream mapping and quality control. The results have been evidenced by a reduction in lead time, assured quality, the generation of less waste material and greater operational efficiency. The success of these procedures has led to them being replicated in other Verder manufacturing sites.

Commenting on Autoclude now being part of the Verder Group, General Manager John Watkins said: "Our customers have the assurance of knowing we now have corporate stability and even greater R&D resources. They also have access to the single source supply of the most comprehensive range of industrial pumps to suit every application and budget."
