URACA - 125 years of high-tech from the heart of the Swabian Alb

URACA is one of the pioneers in the construction of pumps. Since its founding in 1893 as a mechanical workshop by the two gentlemen Krumm and Magenwirth, the traditional German company from the heart of the Swabian Alb deals with this topic. Pump technology has evolved enormously over the decades, but one thing has remained the same: the high quality and high performance of URACA products.
