Peerless Pump Company was
originally founded near Los Angeles, California in 1923. The first
pumps manufactured by Peerless were designed to irrigate local
orange groves. They later produced horizontal end suction pumps
Models PB & PE from a Canton, Ohio facility. In 1946, the
current Indianapolis Plant was purchased from the US Army. Soon
after, Peerless enters the horizontal split case market with the A,
TU & TUT pumps.
In 1994 Peerless purchased
the LaBour Pump Company in Elkhart, Indiana. LaBour is a producer of
Chemical Process Pumps known for their high alloy expertise world
wide. By the fall of that year all production of LaBour products are
moved to the Selma, Alabama location and engineering is relocated to
Indianapolis. Also in this year the California operation is moved
from Montebello, California to Indianapolis consolidating all of the
Peerless Product in one facility.
Peerless continues to
innovate and looks forward to a new century of being one of the
world leaders of Fire Pumps & Packages and Vertical Turbine
Pumps. Building on over 75 years of experience, Peerless has the
experience to meet any customer requirements.
