Thompson Pump looks for central US growth with Kirby-Smith Machinery partnership

Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company says it has expanded its distribution in the central United States thanks to a new partnership with Kirby-Smith Machinery, Inc.

With this new partnership, Kirby-Smith, a distributor of heavy construction equipment in the central USA, will be selling, servicing and renting Thompson Pump’s products throughout Oklahoma and north and west Texas within markets like governmental sales, oil & gas, construction, mining and industrial, Thompson Pump said.

The company said: “In this region, terrain and geography can be tricky. Thompson Pump’s more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing pumps and operating its own rental branch locations has helped it to build heavy-duty, portable pumps that hold up to the rigours of the area.”

Combined with Kirby-Smith’s service in the territory for more than 40 years, Thompson Pump’s National Sales Manager, Pat Broderick, says this partnership is a natural fit.

“We are very excited about this partnership as it brings Thompson Pump’s products and name recognition to a region with plenty of competitors,” Broderick said. “Kirby-Smith is one of the premier equipment dealers in the central US and the continuity of products and services it provides to this market is key to our growth in the area.”

Kirby-Smith’s General Manager, Industrial Equipment, Sam Schneider, said: “Partnering with a company like Thompson Pump, which is known throughout the industries for its reliability, support and value, allows us to expand our reach and connect with customers in an entirely new way.”

Kirby-Smith Machinery is a full-service dealer serving the construction, mining and industrial markets since 1983. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, the company has branch locations in cities such as Tulsa, McAlester, Kansas City, St. Louis, Dallas, Fort Worth, Abilene, Amarillo, Odessa, Lubbock and Waco.
