Schurco Slurry, an American manufacturer of heavy-duty slurry pumps, acquired KETO Pumps, based near Johannesburg, South Africa.

The purchase increases Schurco Slurry’s share in the global slurry pumping market, Schurco said.

“The addition to KETO Pumps’ experience in the African mining markets combined with their intellectual property assets and resources will provide our global clients with more material options, a wider range of capabilities, and better service and support for Schurco Slurry products across the board,” said Nicholas Schur, owner, Schurco Slurry. “The acquisition is also expected to streamline our global operations and allow us to better serve customers across continental Africa, Europe and the Middle East.”
