Waukesha Cherry-Burrell today is the result of a decade of acquisitions and mergers. In 1990, Cherry-Burrell Food Equipment, Cedar Rapids, IA, was divisionalized into packaging, fluid handling and process equipment. Waukesha Pumps (positive displacement pumps), Superior Stainless (fittings, valves and centrifugal pumps) and Cherry-Burrell Fluid Handling (fittings and valves) merged to form Waukesha Fluid Handling, headquartered at the Superior Stainless facility in Delavan, WI.
Cherry-Burrell process equipment, Cedar Rapids, IA, (components and skidded systems) and Little Falls, NY (tanks) merged with Anco-Votator, Louisville, KY (heat exchangers) and kept the Cherry-Burrell Process Equipment name.
In 1992, Waukesha Fluid Handling acquired Bredel (peristaltic hose pumps), Delden, and The Netherlands. The company also purchased 51% of Puriti (valves and centrifugal pumps) in Mexico.
The Waukesha Cherry-Burrell company was formed in 1995 when Waukesha Fluid Handling merged with Cherry-Burrell Process Equipment. Also that year, the company completed 100% acquisition of Puriti. Bredel was divested in 1996 and the Little Falls facility was sold in 1997.
The new organization, with its global network of stocking distributors and manufacturing representatives, is committed to offering a complete line of quality products and services for customers worldwide.
