Holland Pump Company was originally founded in 1978 as Holland Pump Mfg. Inc. Holland Pump manufactures, sells, rents and services pumps and accessories. Headquartered in West Palm Beach, Holland has rental/sales/service offices throughout Florida and in South Carolina. These pumps are both engine driven and electrically driven. They are available with a wide variety of options including sound attenuation, controls including telemetry monitoring, GPS and remote auto start/ stop and accessories. In addition, Holland is a distributor and OEM for many products and offers a large variety of hoses, fittings, engine parts, pump parts.

“Holland Pump has been a small manufacturer for 38 years,” said Win Blodgett, president of Holland Pump. “Initially we specialized in hydraulically driven submersible pumps which we both design and manufacture.”

“Over time, we became a custom assembler of not only hydraulic pump systems but also positive displacement rotary pump packages, engine and frame mounted centrifugal pumps, and axial flow pumps,” said Blodgett.

“In addition to being a small manufacturer we are a leading regional pump rental company, said Blodgett.

Holland Pump's average employee has ten years of service and the company has a significant number with between 20 and 36 years of tenure.

“During the Great Recession we sold off a lot of equipment but we still have a lot of extra equipment and have kept a large number of units that can be repowered,” said Blodgett. Typically, skids and trailers are very robust and are made out of 3/16 and ¼ in. steel plate. “Our equipment is built like a tank and built to last. In our own rental fleet we have units that have been repowered with a new engine three or more times,” said Blodgett.

Prior to 2007, most distributors carried a lot of inventory, according to Blodgett.

“Business was great for everybody. I could order an engine and get it within two days. Now, although it is steadily improving, most manufacturers are a lot more cautious with ordering. Lead-times have increased and we may have to wait weeks for critical components. Prices have also risen very significantly especially for steel and engines,” said Blodgett.

“I have well over a hundred units that can be repowered. When we repower a unit, I can take it back to bare metal, sandblast as needed, re-prime and re-paint, then build back up the unit with a new engine and radiator, new wiring, new control panel. We can save the customer a lot of lead-time and money,” said Blodgett.

Blodgett said that the company's standard unit integral fuel tanks are sized to supply 60 hours of run time.

“Typically, this means you can fuel the unit Friday night and come back Monday morning and the unit is still running. A smaller sized fuel tank runs out of fuel, clogs up the fuel filter, and then the operator may even run the battery down in their attempt to get the unit back up and running.”

Blodgett said that the company has Flex credits, which saves customers money.

“Holland still has a lot of Flex credits left so we can legally provide older Tier models at a lower cost. Finally, we also have over 30 new wetends in stock and over 20 finished powder-coated aluminum enclosures in stock,” said Blodgett.
