MWI CEO Comments On Acquisition Of Thompson Pump Rental Division by United Rentals

MWI Pumps, DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., February 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Dana Eller, the CEO of MWI Pumps, commented on the acquisition of Thompson Pump Rental Division by United Rentals which was announced on February 15th and noted that “this investment is a good sign for our industry and a great recognition of all the employees at Thompson Pump’s rental locations, their knowledge of pumps and their critical skills in dewatering applications.”

Eller noted that, “cities across the United States will need to spend $655 billion over the next 20 years to upgrade water and sewer systems” according to the Environmental Protection Agency and “this acquisition is an acknowledgement of the importance that Specialty Pump rental companies and their employees play when a city’s sewer system fails due to age or whenever underground systems are upgraded.”

Eller added that, “designing such pumping systems, installing them, and ensuring that they are kept operating around the clock is not your standard rental job. “Whenever someone new enters our industry with only a general rental background it is always a learning experience,” Eller said. “Obviously United Rentals recognized the value and reputation in Thompson Pumps rental locations and their employees.”

With MWI’s 90 years of experience manufacturing pumps and 50 years of water pump rentals, Eller is convinced that the key to success is the ability to maintain a higher level of employee skill, engineering expertise and dedication to get the job done. “Pumps rented by specialty companies like MWI Pumps, will continue to play a critical role in the future development and rebuilding of Florida and the U.S.,” Eller concluded.
