Tumar bv was founded in Ghent on 01/02/1984 by Julien De Martelaere. His brother Lucien (formerly ITT Flygt) took care of the commercial side of the company Tumar. Until 2000 the activity of Tumar was essentially maintaining and installing sewage pumping stations in various municipalities. Major customers were the City of Ghent, City of Knokke, Beersel, Putte, Assenede, ...
In August 2000 the company was taken over by Marc Remmery (ex Allweiler pumps, ex ABS pumps, ex Aquasystems) and the workshop and office moved to Merelbeke.
Simultaneously, a contract was signed with EMU Unterwasserpumpen GmbH (now WILO) for distributing their products in the water treatment sector.
In 2020 Tumar's shareholders have decided to sell their family-owned company to the German family-owned company WILO SE. The transfer of activities is a step in Tumar's further growth process. By joining the internationally operating WILO group, the continuity of the company is guaranteed and extra resources are available to improve the quality of service.
In the future you will also be able to rely on the familiar services and your trusted contacts within Tumar. The staff is always ready to help you from the familiar Fraterstraat 45 location - 9820 Merelbeke.
In 2004, we acquired the agency for Belgium of SCM Italy, and a major expansion of the sales package was realized . SCM produces mainly submersible and surface aerators.
Tumar holds a registration class 26 and 27: Electro-technical and special equipment, and a recognition class L2 class 3: Equipment of pump and turbine stations.
Our work includes the supply and service provision to the products of the aforementioned brands, repair and installation of several pump brands as well as providing maintenance on electromechanical equipment in water treatment plants.
