Tsurumi to Offer Pump Rentals in France
Although Tsurumi has been in the French market for years, thanks to a new development, the company will serve the French pump market directly for both customer distribution and rentals. The new location was established in November of 2015 and stocks a large number of pumps and accessories. For a better customer experience, they also employ a number of qualified pump rental professionals.
When it comes to leading Tsurumi Pompes Location S.A.S. (TPL), this pump supplier has turned to Gaetan Beaulieu, who has a deep understanding of the French rental market. As the new head, Gaetan Beaulieu has taken steps to acquire the Belgian Tsurumi distributor, Marine Motors & Pumps N.V. (MMPumps), which has over 40 years of experience and an established customer base.
“The French dewatering pump rental market is a major area where we see the main submersible pump players,” says Gaetan Beaulieu, head of operations at TPL. “Now is the perfect time for Tsurumi to establish its own rental operations to cover unreached rental customers and capitalize on growing market potential.”
MMPumps will continue to sell and rent pumps for the Belgian market, but it will now also be involved in the French rental market through Tsurumi. MMPumps will cross-rent, as well as house, one of their essential maintenance centers.
Tsurumi has thousands of pumps and almost all of its 250 pump models are available for rapid delivery, including a large stock of spare parts that ensure the least amount of pump downtime.
“Availability is everything,” says Daniel Weippert, managing director of Tsurumi Europe. “Our new rental operation in France aims to strengthen existing relationships to equipment rental companies by giving them the opportunity to rent larger and special pumps at short notice. Tsurumi pumps are known for their reliability and trouble free operation. Our customers should also get peace of mind for their rental applications and their own customers.”
