Current Applications, Inc. is announcing the purchase of Galway Pumps in North East, PA. Galway barrel and transfer pumps are known in the industry for their rugged construction and increased flow rate. Current Applications manufactured and supplied all the electric motor drives for Galway Pumps for over fifteen years giving Current Applications a great deal of experience in working with Galway and its owners as well as unparalleled access to Galway’s business and products over that time. Galway Pumps was one of their first clients and Current Applications is proud to bring them into the fold as a permanent fixture of their product offering.
For several years Current Applications was looking to expand upon its growing custom motors and drives offerings. It was a natural fit to add the Galway barrel pumps to this existing products line when the opportunity presented itself.
The manufacture and assembly of Galway Pumps was moved to the Watertown facility in January 2016. All pump components, including the original electric motor drives, are now machined, manufactured and assembled at Current Applications’ Northern New York facility. With this move Current Applications also expands from strictly selling to the OEM market to now offering a product directly to the consumer or end user.
According to Current Applications President, George Anderson, “The quality, efficiency, power, and long life of Current Applications motors has always been known in the motor industry. Built with the best materials, we pride ourselves at Current Applications in our product quality and durability. Adding the complete Galway Pump to our lineup of products fits in perfectly with what we do and how we do it.” Current Applications brings the same standards and excellence to all pump components, which are machined on state-of-the-art CNC equipment to exact tolerances. Product quality is checked at each manufacturing stage. Each and every pump or mixer is thoroughly tested before shipment to the customer.
Bob Way, co-founder of Galway Pumps, has been retained by the company as a consultant and will be available to assist customers whenever necessary. For Mr. Way, Galway’s move to Northern New York is a natural evolution for the product he created with his brother, Richard, nearly twenty-five years ago. “To know that our pumps are going to be manufactured to the same exacting standards my brother and I adopted years ago was a dream come true. Galway Pumps and our customers are in very good hands with Current Applications,” he said.
Galway Pumps are a seal-less bearing-less design that offer simple maintenance and affordable parts. Pumps are available in any standard length from 100cm to 146cm. Custom lengths are available per customer request. Pumps are available in CPVC, PVDF, Polypro, and Stainless Steel materials. Wetted surface materials, such as Stainless or Hastelloy shafts and Viton and Teflon O-rings are available for chemical pumping needs.
Pump drives are available in rugged and durable electric and air drives. Pumps are heavy duty, affordable, and simply constructed to allow for ease of disassembly and assembly for any necessary routine maintenance. Electric drives are rated for continuous duty.
Galway Pumps are competitively priced. Built in the USA, Galway Pumps are constructed with quality materials and components. Known for its quality since 1984, the Current Applications’ team will continue the tradition of Galway Pumps, providing exceptional customer service and support; the same service and support one would expect before and after the sale.
Current Applications is a private S-Corporation. The four owners of Current Applications are all on-premises and active with the company. Since 2000 Current Applications has designed and manufactured custom universal, permanent magnet, and brushless motors for many OEM’s throughout the USA and the world. All custom motor products, barrel and transfer pumps are built with state of the art CNC machinery and dedicated work cells in Current Applications’ 30,000 square foot facility in Watertown, NY.
