Finish Thompson Inc. Acquires Penguin Pumps, Inc.

Penguin Pumps is a 24-person company based in southern California. They manufacture corrosion-resistant pumps, mixers, filter systems, and filter chambers primarily used in the surface finishing, chemical processing, and chemical manufacturing industries.

“As family-owned businesses, Finish Thompson and Penguin Pumps share many of the same values, including a focus on employees, quality products, and customer satisfaction,” says Casey Bowes, CEO of Finish Thompson. “With this purchase, we are able to maintain these values across both companies while also opening up new areas of growth for Finish Thompson’s own pump products.”

The purchase of Penguin Pumps will give Finish Thompson a full offering of filtration systems, supported by Finish Thompson’s quality range of mag-drive centrifugal pumps. Additionally, Penguin Pump’s vertical plastic pumps and tank and drum mixers perfectly complement Finish Thompson’s line of horizontal centrifugal pumps, air-operated double diaphragm pumps (FTI Air), and drum pumps.

“With this acquisition, Finish Thompson now offers one of the most comprehensive lines of corrosion-resistant pump products in the global industrial fluid handling market,” says Bowes.

Penguin Pumps will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Finish Thompson, Inc.
