Based in Charlotte, USA, Liquid Handling Equipment, Inc. has been meeting the demands of industry’s fluid handling needs for over three decades. As a solutions-driven provider, LHE set themselves apart by their immediate service, knowledgeable people, quality equipment from top manufacturers such as HMD Kontro, and custom-engineered / fabricated systems and equipment.
LHE provides engineering and maintenance services that ease workloads and eliminate costly setbacks, affording customers the advantages of custom solutions and service without the need for in-house personnel.
Liquid Handling Equipment has been working with HMD Kontro for approximately 30 years. They originally started stocking GT, GSA and CS pumps. As the inventory and stock continued to grow they moved into a new facility in 1996 allowing them more office and warehouse space. Then again in 2019, LHE completed a new extension to give them 14,000 sq. ft. of shop and a much larger warehouse. This also gives more capabilities for assemblies, repairs and testing. LHE’s inventory has now grown from the initial inventory of approximately $10,000 in the 90’s to $1.8M today.
The Stock Depot began officially in 2008. The goal was to ship pumps and parts same day or next day in the Americas to all the HMD Kontro Channel Partners. Early on LHE’s philosophy included a culture with a high sense of urgency, a commitment to HMD Kontro and a passion for the product. Working with them, our loyalty to the Channel Partners is unwavering to get product to the customers quickly.
Many end users have been won over with this service. It has definitely been a joint service venture with HMD Kontro, the American Channel Partners and Liquid Handling Equipment. It requires dedicated personnel at HMD Kontro and LHE to make this programme successful.
Said Neal Mann of LHE: “Both companies are fortunate to have great people. We have developed many friendships and long-standing relationships. These have helped us through the good and bad times. I look forward to another 30-years growing the HMD Kontro products in the Americas.”
