River Group is a leading water and wastewater company focusing on pump technology and its aftermarket in Northern Europe. We combine a local presence and passion with the structure and professionalism of larger companies. This way we both help and challenge one another, ensuring innovation, sustainability and customized solutions.

Our heritage comes from the Lakers Group, but since 2023 we have operated as River Group. River Group was founded by key individuals within the group, and together with Equip Capital, around 85 percent of the entities from Lakers Group were acquired.

We felt stronger as a standalone company.

Why are we named River Group?

A river is a large, natural stream of flowing water. Rivers make water flow.

Rivers have always been important for society. They’ve been a primary transportation route for thousands of years, bringing people together and sharing innovation, culture and collaboration.

Like a river, River Group brings people, knowledge and innovation together.

As a group, we help each other flow – sharing knowledge, customers, and resources. River Group is a large, natural stream of flowing expertise and experience.

Together, we make water flow.
