Rubix Poland has acquired PePe sp. z o. o. – a renowned supplier of specialist flow products in Poland – as part of the Group’s network development strategy.

PePe’s focus on stainless steel solutions used primarily in the food and processing industries will expand our capabilities in the segment across Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

PePe is an Alfa Laval master distributor and also provides heat exchanger and hygienic pump maintenance services.

Operating out of its purpose-built headquarters in Solec Kujawski, PePe was founded in 1992 by Piotr Pakulski and Paulina Nawra. It currently has 16 employees and is expected to report sales of c. PLN 18 million for the year ended 31 December 2020.

Whilst continuing to operate independently, PePe will become part of Rubix Poland and provide a strong platform for Rubix to further develop its flow offering in the CEE region.

Reporting to Pinaki Banerjee, CEO Rubix CEE, Piotr Pakulski and Paulina Nawra will remain in their roles and will continue to support the further growth of PePe.

Paulina Nawra said: “Joining Rubix is a significant step for the development of our company.”

Piotr Pakulski said: “I look forward to working with the Rubix team on the next stage of development of PePe.”

Pinaki Banerjee commented: “We are proud to welcome the team at PePe as well as its customers and suppliers to the Rubix family. This is an exciting development of our business in Poland, whilst adding further capabilities relevant to our food and beverage customers.”
