The pump industry was abuzz with news of the National Pump & Energy acquisition in August.

NPE had acquired Vortex Group – bolstering its hire fleet, national footprint and personnel count. NPE’s service capabilities expanded to include water treatment and lab services.

NPE managing director, Dave Campbell, said this was a very exciting development for both organisations and indeed the broader pump and power rental industry in Australia.

“This latest acquisition by National Pump & Energy now secures its position as the largest pump rental and specialty dewatering company in Australia,” Mr Campbell said.

National Pump & Energy’s hire fleet now has more than 6,000 dewatering pumps and generators. The company spans 12 branches across five states and one territory, and the team has grown to more than 450 employees.

The acquisition of Vortex allows NPE to strengthen its market offering by:
