ProVac Ltd, a company providing vacuum equipment and service across the country of Ireland, has announced that it will be changing its name from ProVac Ltd to Leybold Ireland, effective 1st January 2024. The decision to change follows the company acquisition into the Vacuum Technique division of Atlas Copco Group in December 2021 and reflects its commitment to delivering innovative vacuum pump equipment and vacuum services across the country of Ireland.

Though the company name is changing to Leybold, the operational team remains the same, and it will maintain its presence in Wexford, County Wexford, home to the Customer Care team, In-house Service team and Field Service team.

“Both new and existing customers will continue to receive the same excellent service support they have come to expect from Provac over the past 25 years,” emphasises Ian Dorman, General Manager Leybold EMEA North & East. “Ireland is a very important market for Leybold, in sectors including food processing and packaging, nuclear enrichment and across the scientific markets.”

“This change puts us in a strong position to grow our service business locally by leveraging the strength of the Leybold brand and position as a leader in vacuum solutions.” Says John Whelan, Service Manager Ireland. “The team are delighted and very positive about the exciting opportunities ahead.”

You will now see the “Leybold” name across communications, and the company website, social media handles and email will be updated to reflect the new name.

Leybold invites employees, customers and suppliers to celebrate this exciting new chapter and the opportunities it brings.
