The company, which has been headquartered in Lubbock, Texas since 1951, also operates a facility in Willcox, Arizona, and recently completed construction of a new state-of-the-art 35,000 sq ft engineered products facility in Lubbock.

Renovations will soon start on Simflo’s 40,500 sq ft Southaven facility, which is located on 3.5 acres. Located just eight miles from Memphis International Airport and 14 miles from the International Port of Memphis, its central US location and proximity to major shipping hubs allows Simflo to better serve its growing customer base in the eastern and southern US.

The project includes a complete interior remodel to modernize the office space, with all-new flooring, windows, ceilings and LED lighting. Simflo is also making significant upgrades to its warehouse, which will include bridge cranes, expanded exterior doors, and new concrete and exterior storage adjacent to the facility for easy commercial vehicle loading and unloading.

Simflo’s new Southaven location will be fully operational in early 2024. It will offer the company’s full line of high-quality vertical and submersible turbine pumps, as well as other parts and accessories, each engineered and customized to meet its customers’ specific application needs.

“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous amount of growth and success our company has experienced over the past few years, and none of this would be possible without the continued commitment, hard work, and sacrifices made by our talented team members,” said Troy Pickering, CEO of Simflo.

“Entering the greater Memphis region – and having access to one of the world’s busiest hubs for barge, air, truck, and rail cargo traffic – will enable us to better serve our customers,” said Woody Boyd, president and chief financial officer of Simflo. “This new location is ideal because it allows us to both receive and deliver products in an expedited manner.”

Simflo engineers, manufactures, sources, and delivers pump products and technologies for major industrial users, including municipal water services, manufacturing, mining, chemicals, hydrocarbons, saltwater extraction, and agricultural applications.
