Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co. announced it is celebrating its 50th anniversary in business. The company started as a dewatering contractor founded by a NASA engineer and servicing the construction market in the Southeast region of the U.S. The company eventually jumped into pump manufacturing and sales.

One of the company’s founders, Bill Thompson, said the company enabled him to live the American dream. “Reaching the milestone of 50 years is very gratifying for me, the entire Thompson family, and the folks who stood side-by-side with us serving our customers and building our company.”

Thompson attributes the company’s success to the family and the company’s long-time employees. “Their contributions to our success cannot be overstated.”
