Thompson Pump Launches Partnership with Kirby-Smith Machinery in Central United States

TULSA, OK — Thompson Pump expands its distribution in the central United States with a new partnership. Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of heavy-duty, diesel-powered bypass and dewatering pumps, announces its distributor’s agreement with Kirby-Smith Machinery, Inc.

With this new partnership, Kirby-Smith, a distributor of heavy construction equipment in the central U.S., will be selling, servicing, and renting Thompson Pump’s products throughout Oklahoma and North and West Texas within markets like governmental sales, oil & gas, construction, mining, and industrial.

In this region, terrain and geography can be tricky. Thompson Pump’s more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing pumps and operating its own rental branch locations has helped it to build heavy-duty, portable pumps that hold up to the rigors of the area. Combined with Kirby-Smith’s service in the territory for more than 40 years, Thompson Pump’s National Sales Manager Pat Broderick said this partnership is a natural fit.

“We are very excited about this partnership as it brings Thompson Pump’s products and name recognition to a region with plenty of competitors,” Broderick said. “Kirby-Smith is one of the premier equipment dealers in the central U.S., and the continuity of products and services it provides to this market is key to our growth in the area.”

“Partnering with a company like Thompson Pump, which is known throughout the industries for its reliability, support, and value, allows us to expand our reach and connect with customers in an entirely new way,” said Kirby-Smith’s Sam Schneider, General Manager, Industrial Equipment.
