Pumping Solutions' Timeline


Company Founded

David Thorley, founder of Pumping Solutions, has been working in the industry from the age of 16 and has a real passion for what he does. In 1999, with a wealth of experience behind him, he set up the business with his wife, Sharon, targeting commercial sector initially, before growing into the domestic sector after a couple of years.


1st Employee Outside of The Family

After 3 years of running the company with just family members, Pumping Solutions employed a new member of staff from outside of the family, continuing to expand the business.


1st New Service Vehicle

In 2003, after 4 years of building and growing the business, Pumping Solutions got its first new service vehicle. This enabled the continued growth of the servicing side of the business.


Now a Limited Company

In 2004, Pumping Solutions made the decision to become a Limited company after turnover continued to grow year-on-year. Along with the increase of turnover, our knowledge, customer support, equipment and more also increased!


Largest Sewage Treatment Plant Installed

In 2005 Pumping Solutions underwent a very large project of designing and installing the large sewage treatment plant we’d ever done. You can find a case study of this project here.


Purchased Own Premises

As continued growth and success happened, we eventually had to move out of our existing premised to move into a bigger property, which we purchased in 2010.


1st Service Partnership Signed

A big moment in the company’s history was signing an EXCLUSIVE UK WIDE service partnership deal with DAB, a large supplier of water technology and parts.


Largest Ever Order Signed

After 16 years of growth and expansion, Pumping Solutions signed their biggest ever order… to help design and build¬†the World’s LARGEST surf park in Wales – Surf Snowdonia. Today, we have the capacity to deal with contracts of anywhere up to ¬£250k.
