Shippensburg Pump Co., Inc. (dba “Shipco Pumps®”) was Featured on Manufacturing Marvels® on The Fox Business Network, October 3rd, 2013.
The production exemplifies Shipco Pumps® dedication to its American employees, manufacturing, and the niche steam condensate and boiler feed pump market the company serves worldwide. The segment focuses on Shipco’s® diverse product line as the basis for its continued growth.
"With leftover skilled workforce in the south-central Pennsylvania region from the closing of the ITT Domestic Pump Company plant in the late 1970s (headquartered in Shippensburg), we started over and re-built this company together," says CEO and General Manager Duaine Collier.” “This is the foundation for Shipco’s® success and we have maintained a steadfast allegiance to keeping manufacturing in the United States, and requiring as much of our supply chain to be domestic sourced as possible," he adds.
"Others are so quick to move their operations and supply chain offshore," Collier says, "but we have a great workforce, country, and ideas ... and with America's leadership in innovation, it's only right to sustain our workforce here in the USA. We have found that our customer base values quality and lead time, as much as the bottom line. We invest deeply in our employees, our local community, the steam industry, and our key to success has been offering a flexible product line, with the option to customize each product to the requirements of the end user," concludes Collier.
Mr. Collier, and his wife [Trudy] own and operate several inter-related businesses based out of Shippensburg including: Valley Heating and Cooling, LLC, (a Division of College Town, Inc.), Nealco Equipment, LLC., Beidel Printing House, Inc., Fortney Packages, Inc., and White Mane Publishing, Inc.
