30 years metering pump DP2 – with Hermann Thomas comes full circle

An era comes to an end: December 18th, 2015 founder Hermann Thomas was a guest in the production halls of the company to manufacture the last fuel metering pump DP2 at the production line symbolically. Last numbers of the legendary metering pump have been produced for nearly 30 years. This fuel pump is a unique product of Thomas - the first type of a compact integrated in-line dosing pump combining excellent self-priming ability, integrated shut-off functionality and precise metering behavior to provide exactly the requested amount of fuel. 

The date on which Hermann Thomas built the last DP2 was celebrated as it represents the basis for the whole dosing pump family Thomas developed since then. One member of this family is the follow-up DP42, already produced for many years, that has improved functionality.

A detailed report on this event will be published in the upcoming issue of the corporate newspaper Colloquium.
