There has been increasing media attention lately about manufacturing making a resurgence on North America shores. The trash pump manufacturing business is no different. But to companies like Wastecorp who has manufactured trash pumps, diaphragm pumps , plunger pumps and now double disc pumps on North American soil for over 20 years, we are slightly taken aback by the renewed focus.
Our Trash Flow Trash pumps are a good example about how manufacturing in North America, never really left. Over the last 18 months for example we have seen a nice surge in business from municipalities and industries looking for high quality trash pumps within a reasonable lead time. What does reasonable lead time mean in the world of trash pumps you might ask? With the Trash Flow, you are looking at between 3-7 week delivery on most of our models, ranging from bare pumps (simply replacing an old pump with a new one while utilizing the same motor or taking out a Gorman Rupp T Series and installing a new Trash Flow in its place) to engine driven trash pumps mounted on a trailer or skid mounted.
Now you might say “that’s great that you manufacture your pumps here, so what are the prices like?”. To clear up any misconceptions, the pricing of Trash Flow trash pumps are in many cases lower than comparable 2”-12” models with pumping capabilities up to 6300 GPM.
