Florida Pumping Solutions acquires American Sock & Dewatering

Thompson Pump distributor Florida Pumping Solutions (FPS) is expanding its services with the acquisition of American Sock & Dewatering, a socking company in Northern Florida.

Socking is a technique used to prevent water intrusion during excavation and construction, slurry pumping, bypass pumping and emergency response.

As FPS expands with this acquisition, Thompson Pump says it will continue to impart expertise, education and training to the FPS team and will make additional dewatering pumps, equipment and accessories available.

Thompson Pump provides multiple models of dewatering pumps with a focus on rotary and piston pumps, as well as vacuum-assisted models, for wellpoint and sock underdrain.

“We are so excited for FPS and their acquisition of American Sock, and we look forward to supporting them in their growth,” said Chris Thompson, president of Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co.
