Electric Pump & Tool was purchased by Richard S. Miller in 1980 as a motor shop in downtown Des Moines.  In the years since, the name has changed a little but the business has changed a lot.  Still a family owned and run business, Electric Pump has changed locations twice to accommodate its continued growth.  Located on NE 14th in Des Moines, Electric Pump boasts a highly skilled office staff, a full service repair shop and houses one of the manufacturing arms, Quality Machine & Manufacturing (QM&M).

As the needs of Electric Pump’s customers have grown so has the business.  Service locations were added in the Quad Cities area and Omaha.  When the assets of a pump company in Minnesota were purchased, Electric Pump was able to reach customers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas.  Finally, a service location was opened in Fargo, North Dakota which allowed Electric Pump to respond quickly and efficiently to their northern customers’ needs.  While the number of locations has increased, the mission of Electric Pump has remained the same; provide customer focused solutions, exceptional service to our clients and top quality products.
