Our ripple effect makes waves

It all started with a handshake.

In 1941, Clarence Simmons opened a machine shop in the small West Texas town of Sundown. He provided machining services to the general public and for the booming oil and gas industry. However, he knew he could grow well beyond his humble beginnings.

In 1953, Mr. Simmons hired Raymond Pickering, a visionary and entrepreneur who shared Mr. Simmon’s dream of transforming a small machine shop into a premier manufacturer. Pickering knew, however, expansion could only be maintained through exceptional products – a sentiment which laid the framework for SIMFLO’s quality assurance procedures still in practice today.

With continued growth and success, Mr. Simmons and Mr. Pickering developed their own line of vertical turbine pumps. The first Simmons brand bowl assembly was manufactured and sold in 1956. From that moment on, Simmons products have been manufactured and tested in the United States of America, ensuring unmatched quality through uncompromising standards.

Since Mr. Simmons opened his first machine shop, SIMFLO has evolved into a major manufacturer of over 75 different pump models as well as countless replacement parts and accessories.
