North Tonawanda, New York-based Buffalo Pumps, a division of Ampco-Pittsburgh’s Air and Liquid Systems Corp, manufactures centrifugal pumps for the global maritime defence and commercial markets.
Through the agreement, Buffalo Pumps will have access to FMD’s global network of highly trained field service technicians and the defence contractor’s strategically located service centres to provide service and overhaul solutions for the company’s maritime defence customers.
The agreement combines more than a century of expertise from the companies to expand service capabilities for the US Navy, Military Sealift Command and US Coast Guard customers.
“Fairbanks Morse Defense understands that our work means more than supporting well-maintained, high-performing ships. Our customers require a service partner who can deliver superior service with zero compromises in safety or quality,” said Jamie McMullin, president of FMD Services. “Through our collaboration with Buffalo Pumps, we bring added value to our customers with the ability to deliver rapid, local, OEM expertise and complete turnkey service solutions for a broader range of mission critical systems.”
“Fairbanks Morse Defense’s extensive field service network and focus on supporting naval customers will provide unparalleled support to our customers when and where they need it,” said David Anderson, president of Air and Liquid Systems Corp.
Buffalo Pumps’ commercial use pumps date back to 1887, and its marine pumps predate the First World War.
