Creating fluid solutions – with a combination of advice, technology and service expertise
LEWA GmbH, with its headquarters in Leonberg, is a leading supplier of precision metering pumps, high-performance process diaphragm pumps, metering systems and packages.
Even back in the middle of the last century, the reliable metering of fluids was a matter for the experts. Herbert Ott, who founded LEWA in 1952, enjoyed an excellent reputation in this field.
Today, the company counts as one of the world’s leading experts in liquid metering and develops, builds and sells high-quality metering and process diaphragm pumps. They are used particularly in critical processes and safety-relevant industrial applications. LEWA’s diaphragm technology allows its customers to run precise, safe and environmentally friendly operations.
LEWA’s activities are not however limited to pump technology; its system solutions also integrate developments from fields as varied as process engineering, fluid mechanics, control engineering and mechatronics. The innovative power of its own research and development department and the achievements of its engineers are mirrored in over 30 patents issued worldwide.
Another strength is the development of customised solutions. Together with the customer, systems are developed for a variety of industries with a focus on oil and gas, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharma and personal care, food and beverages, plastics, cleaning and detergents, energy and environment and other special applications like, for instance, gas odorisation.
With 14 subsidiaries, around 80 authorised agents and 700 employees worldwide, users will find branch offices and cooperation partners in all major countries. Through its regional sales organisations, LEWA also markets complementary products from other reputable manufacturers.
In August 2009, LEWA GmbH was acquired by the Japanese company NIKKISO Co., Ltd. As the products and target markets of the two companies scarcely overlap, both NIKKISO and LEWA have thus benefited from a stronger position in the global market.
