Taco Hydroflo Debuts New Texas Facility

The operation allows for expansion of space, staff and capabilities.

Taco Hydroflo Pump Solutions opened a new facility in Lubbock, Texas, in February. The site substantially expands the operations of the Taco Family of Companies, which is based in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Hydroflo’s new location is in the manufacturing and transportation hub of northwest Texas, 40 miles north of its prior location in Brownfield, Texas.

The 45,000-square-foot location offers room for future growth in space, staff and capabilities. It also substantially expands the company’s manufacturing, warehouse and quality control operations, said Clay Williams, Hydroflo’s director of sales.

New manufacturing equipment was purchased for the facility, and a state-of-the-art test pit will expand testing capabilities.

“The new test pit is much larger and deeper and greatly expands our range of testing,” said Larry Jones, Hydroflo VP. “We now have the ability to test all current pump models, something we previously had to outsource.”

“The opening of this new Taco Hydroflo Pump Solutions facility signifies a renewed focus on ensuring that our customers have access to the most dependable high quality vertical and submersible pumps in the market,” said Cheryl Merchant, president and CEO of Taco Family of Companies.

Hydroflo manufactures a range of submersible turbine, vertical axial-flow, vertical mixed-flow, and vertical turbine pumps.
