National Oilwell Varco (NOV) has announced that it completed the acquisition of Robbins & Myers. “We are delighted to announce the merger between Robbins & Myers and NOV Mono, a leading manufacturer of progressing cavity pumps and associated equipment.  The merger of these two companies will provide us with an incredible opportunity to expand the products and services offered to our customers,” said Pete Miller, Chairman and CEO of National Oilwell Varco.

As a result of the acquisition, many of the Robbins & Myers industrial products have been placed under the Houston-based NOV Mono division of National Oilwell Varco.  This has resulted in an enhanced NOV Mono business that is now positioned as a global leader in progressing cavity pump technology, one which offers a broad portfolio of products and services to help global process industries improve production, reliability and profitability.

The new NOV Mono is now the world’s largest designer and manufacturer of progressing cavity pumps. It also designs and manufactures a wide range of associated products including grinders, screens, mixers, parts and packaged solutions.  These product solutions have numerous applications in water and wastewater, pulp and paper, specialty chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, mining and mineral processing, oil and gas, energy, solar and agriculture.

NOV Mono Senior Vice President Santosh Mathilakath, who leads the new company, said the combination of these strong businesses represents a new force in the industrial pump arena, building  on each company’s rich history and unique market strengths to provide customers with unparalleled breadth and depth of solutions and services.

“The combination of these businesses creates a platform for significant growth,” said Mathilakath. “Our truly global footprint, combined engineering strength, larger market channels, enhanced manufacturing and broadened supply chain capabilities will enable NOV Mono to rapidly create enhanced value propositions for customers, realize manufacturing and supply chain efficiencies,  shorten response time, and provide a superior customer experience.”

The legacy Robbins & Myers business was a leading supplier of engineered equipment and systems for critical applications in global energy, industrial, municipal, chemical and pharmaceutical markets. The following Robbins & Myers businesses are now part of the NOV Mono business:
