Pump Manufacturer Iwaki Walchem Changes Name

Walchem Corp. and Iwaki Co., Ltd., announced a name change for their joint venture manufacturing and sales company in Holliston, Ma., formerly known as Iwaki Walchem Corp.

The new name, "Iwaki America" more accurately defines the 13-year-old firm's hemispheric marketing reach. Still majority-owned by Walchem Corp., Iwaki America plans to continue building on the global strength and ubiquity of the Iwaki brand.
