Underground - where pump safety matters.

In 1947, ABEL GmbH was founded as an engineering company by Wilhelm Abel in Düsseldorf. In the beginning, the company manufactured and sold pumps for the mining industry. As the years passed, additional products and sales markets were added. Today, ABEL is known throughout the world for its production of diaphragm, solids handling, high pressure and marine pumps. By now, the company group consists of several firms and approximately 130 employees worldwide.

The design and development, production, and customer service departments are located together at the company's headquarters in Büchen, just outside of Hamburg.


Since 2015, ABEL has been a part of the Hillenbrand Group, a global diversified industrial company.
