Flowserve Pump Division Extends Services in Australia

10.06.2004

Flowserve Pump Division Australia (FPDA), formerly Thompsons, Kelly & Lewis (TKL), has become the official channel for all Flowserve pump sales in Australia. This includes the Flowserve Durco pump line, formerly distributed by Flowserve Flow Control Division Australia.

Flowserve Durco pumps are noted for their outstanding performance in chemical processing applications, mineral extraction and the chemical and steel making industries.

The change of sales leadership was prompted due to Flowserve’s acquisition of TKL in late February of this year. A long-time distributor for Flowserve, TKL sold all Flowserve pump lines except Durco. In addition to selling Flowserve products, TKL also manufactured its own pumps such as the Titan Slurry, Terra-Titan, Primo Titan and Drain Titan. These have now become Flowserve heritage pump lines.

To accommodate the needs of customers and their regions, FPDA has sales and service facilities in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Wollongong and Brisbane. It also has a strong alliance distributor group that services major mining and industrial centers such as Kalgoorlie, Mount Isa and the Hunter Valley. Manufacturing, packaging and testing of centrifugal pumps is conducted at the FPDA factory in Castlemaine, Victoria. Durco component parts are stocked in both the Castlemaine and Perth locations.

Flowserve Corporation is one of the world’s leading providers of industrial flow management services. Operating in 56 countries, the company produces engineered and industrial pumps for the process industries, precision mechanical seals, automated and manual quarter-turn valves, control valves and valve actuators and provides a range of related flow management services. More information about Flowserve Corporation can be obtained by visiting the company’s website.
