Finish Thompson buys Penguin Pumps

Finish Thompson Inc has acquired southern California-based Penguin Pumps Inc, parent company of Filter Pump Industries.

Penguin Pumps is a 24-person company that manufactures corrosion-resistant pumps, mixers, filter systems, and filter chambers primarily used in the surface finishing, chemical processing, and chemical manufacturing industries.

"As family-owned businesses, Finish Thompson and Penguin Pumps share many of the same values, including a focus on employees, quality products, and customer satisfaction," says Casey Bowes, CEO of Finish Thompson. "With this purchase, we are able to maintain these values across both companies while also opening up new areas of growth for Finish Thompson's own pump products."

Penguin Pumps will give Finish Thompson a full offering of filtration systems, supported by Finish Thompson’s range of mag-drive centrifugal pumps. Additionally, Penguin Pumps’ vertical plastic pumps and tank and drum mixers complement Finish Thompson's line of horizontal centrifugal pumps, air-operated double diaphragm pumps (FTI Air), and drum pumps.

"With this acquisition, Finish Thompson now offers one of the most comprehensive lines of corrosion-resistant pump products in the global industrial fluid handling market," says Bowes.

Penguin Pumps will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Finish Thompson Inc.
