By | May 16, 2017

British based Pegson has been around since 1931 although it can actually be dated back to 1831 when it was initially founded as Samuel Pegg & Son. Starting up by manufacturing in the textile and quarry industry Pegson has grown significantly since it was originally founded both in size, structure and specialism. Now holding over 70 years experience in manufacturing water pumps Pegsons produce a range of centrifugal pumps, plunger pumps and sewage pumps with their pump systems such as their engine cooling pumps in high demand. Originally intended for use in mining and its associated industries the use of Pegson pumps has since evolved into other industries including shipping and transport.

This shift could be accredited to their mergers with Brown Lennox and Terex. Pegson merged with Brown Lennox to form BL-Pegson in 1996 when they both became part of the Powerscreen group. This was followed in a merger with an American based company Terex in 1999 to form Terex Pengson Ltd, helping to expand their brand and products internationally by acting as a driving force in the companies strategy. Now under the global name of Powerscreen, Terex Pegson Ltd has continually evolved its products to reflect the industries demands and has been awarded two Queens Awards for Enterprise, once in 2002 and then again in 2005. By evolving with the industry Terex Pegson saw its industry boom resulting in an 80% growth in exports, which is one of the main reasons for their Queens Award for Enterprise in 2005.

Manufacturing pumps in a wide variety of materials including cast iron and bronze means that Pegson pumps are ideal for a wide variety of applications and industries. Their reputation within the industry speaks volumes about the quality of their products world-wide. They have a host of large client names to their roster including brands such as Caterpillar and Ruston who use their engine cooling pumps in many of their engine systems.

Pegson are known for producing quality reliable pumps which can withstand usage in the toughest of industries. Producing both fresh and sea water pumps in a range of materials Pegson have gone on to produce a range of self priming pumps ideal for use in challenging conditions due to the reduced risk of damage to the pump when in use, increasing its popularity in demanding industries such as shipping, construction and mining.

Although Pegson have since focused on their mining and construction based products their pumps and knowledge of the technology in the industries is still very much in demand world wide.
