Australian Pump Industries recently hosted a reception for Mr. Bill Davidson, President of Tsurumi North America. Held in Sydney’s boutique Norwest business district, the reception was attended by a wide range of mining and pump hire industry leaders with attendees including senior management from Western Australia, Queensland and Victoria.
Tsurumi Pumps is a world-leading manufacturer of submersible mining pumps and water treatment pumps. The company operates a robotised plant in Kyoto with a capacity to build up to 1,000,000 submersible pumps a year.
Tsurumi Pump is also a major manufacturer of sewage pumps, cutter and grinder pumps as well as submersible aeration equipment. Their design emphasis has always been on the development of water processing equipment for a cleaner planet.
Associated with Tsurumi dewatering pumps for over 30 years, Bill Davidson spearheaded the drive to push Tsurumi Pump into the number one position in the North American market in dewatering, rental and mining pump market sectors.
Appointed exclusive Tsurumi Distributors in August last year, Australian Pump Industries is focused on developing the product line in the mining and construction markets.
According to Aussie Pumps Adrian Fiatarone, their aim is to replicate Tsurumi’s North American experience in Australia by introducing Australian consumers to the benefits of the brand’s low maintenance, high quality products.
Davidson was impressed by the engineering expertise exhibited by the people he met during his stay in Australia, including water industry executives with whom he was able to exchange ideas about the latest developments.
Australian Pump will be bringing Bill Davidson back to Australia in 6 months’ time to host a range of technical seminars on water treatment, mine dewatering and through life pump support.
