PumpMan Holdings announced the acquisition of Brooklyn’s Federal Pump, formally extending its system, service and repair operation from Philadelphia through all five New York boroughs.

The deal was announced this week, making it PumpMan’s fourth major acquisition in the past year.

PumpMan.com serves Southern California, but its parent company, PumpMan Holdings, is headquartered in Saddle Brook. In addition to Federal Pump, the company now controls Bartley Pump in Northern California, W.C. Weil Co. in Pittsburgh and Balyan Pump in New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

“This acquisition is an extremely important piece of growing PumpMan into a national service and repair business,” said Donald Devine, CEO and president of PumpMan Holdings. “With Alyan Pump in Philadelphia and the addition of Federal Pump in New York, PumpMan’s service and repair footprint now covers a large portion of the Northeast Corridor, allowing us to address our customers’ needs quickly and efficiently.”

Federal Pump’s president, Christopher Murtagh, will remain in his position, and the company assured that it will still operate under the Federal Pump brand.

“The acquisition of Federal Pump provides a wealth of growth and opportunity,” Murtagh said. “Federal Pump’s longstanding presence in the New York market opens the door for opportunity, backed by the resources of a nationwide pump system, service and repair company to help accelerate our growth.”
