BPH Pump & Equipment, Inc. is a full-service distributor of industrial pumps. BPH was contacted in the spring of 2010 by an engineering firm that had offices in both Europe and the United States. The engineering firm was working with a European automobile manufacturer who was building a brand new assembly plant in the United States. Since the engineering firm had worked with BPH Pump & Equipment in the past, they contacted this reputable industrial pump distributor for assistance. BPH was asked to source submersible pumps that would operate in the new automotive assembly plant’s wastewater sump pits.The Challenge
The engineering firm explained to Leroy Finnigan, Director of Engineering at BPH Pump & Equipment, Inc., that the new automotive assembly plant would require ten submersible pumps.
In January 2014, Premier Pump Co., a national distributor and service provider of industrial pumps and equipment, was contacted by an auto parts supplier to address a persistent pump problem. The automotive manufacturer required a solution that would enable them to stop spending thousands of dollars every month on repair and replacement sump pumps.
The automotive supplier manufactures die cast parts which are used in an automated assembly line to construct power steering units. The power steering units manufactured by this automotive supplier are distributed to several major car manufacturers in the U.S. and abroad. Premier Pump Co. was contacted by the automotive manufacturer in an effort to find the right submersible pump for their dewatering application.The Challenge
