Verder are delighted to announce that our Verderflex Dura 65 peristaltic hose pump has won the Global Business Excellence Award for Outstanding New Product/Service.
The chairman of the judges said “Congratulations to Netherlands-based Verder Group for inventing the Verderflex Dura 65 (D65) peristaltic pump that is the first real development in hose pump technology since the arrival of the high-pressure hose. The D65 pump offers high performance and takes up to 70% less space. Hose changes are fast and easy with the unique connection system. Verder has come up with an easy-to-use and control, robust pump that can be used in a wide range of industries for heavy duty operations.”
“The Global Business Excellence Awards are one of the world’s highest profile awards and winning this accolade speaks volumes about Verder. Due to their high profile, the Awards attract a wide range of entries from across the world, from large international PLCs and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. The winners all have one thing in common – they are truly outstanding at what they do.”
Winning this award is important to Verder because it supports the company’s mantra of trying to offer a solution to customers and being flexible in terms of development to meet global needs and specifications. It is recognition of all of the company’s hard work and the amount of time and dedication that goes into developing such products. 25% of Verder’s staff in the UK are now dedicated research and development professionals but are supported by the global team who contribute a wealth of information and knowledge. This puts innovation at the core of what Verder does and ensures the newest technologies are available to its customers as quickly as possible.
Colin Heathfield, Product Manager for Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps, said: “It is a real pleasure to win this award, this is a pump which although using existing technology has listened to the customer for feedback on what would make their life in terms of pump operation better. I would like to thank and offer praise to our team for coming together with this concept, maximising the flow rate per frame size. From the access hatch to clean the track, through to the lifting eye on the front plate to make the unit safer to work on, we have tried to address the small points that make a difference whilst still trying to maintain a balance between product specification and value for money. Its success as a good value pump for the customer can be reinforced by the number of units going through our system.”
Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa: “The Verderflex Dura 65 hose pump was launched amidst the pandemic last year. It replaced the popular Verderflex VF65, while boasting 20% more flow and 20% longer hose life. This award is a testament to the quality of our products, but also our company’s commitment to innovation and excellence.”
Verder will continue to contribute to the advancement and innovation of the pump industry, and we can’t wait to share yet more new releases over the coming year.
