For 70 years specialists for piston diaphragm pumps

JOSEF EMMERICH PUMPENFABRIK GmbH was founded in Cologne in 1945 and is still an independent, growth oriented company, with the corporate headquarters located in Hönningen-Liers, Germany.

Thanks to more than 70 years’ experience, we are one of the leading specialists in the pumping of slurries in high-pressure applications. Piston diaphragm pumps are our business.

Our product development is characterized by innovation in the field of pump and material technology. This innovation is transparent in everything we do, from design and production, right through to marketing and sales.

Since 1975, JOSEF EMMERICH PUMPENFABRIK GmbH has had its own in-house production of rubber parts.

In 1995, JOSEF EMMERICH PUMPENFABRIK GmbH was the first company to develop a pump with a pump head made of polypropylene and designed for handling large volume flows, operating pressures up to 232 psi (16 bars) and temperatures up to 175°F (80°C).
