In 1914, the American Metal Products Company was launched as the result of an innovative discovery of a new bronze alloy. As business grew, the company was renamed AMPCO Metal.
AMPCO Metal initiated a pumps division in 1948 using the metals produced by the parent company to build industrial centrifugal pumps primarily for saltwater applications. The Division was a natural extension of AMPCO Metal’s excellence in products being used for military operations, especially on barges and ships for the United States Navy.
As the company expanded, the Pumps Division was spun off from AMPCO Metals to launch Ampco Pumps – a company committed to excellence in the engineering and production of pumps. In 1995, under new ownership, Ampco Pumps leveraged its pump market and engineering expertise to diversify its product offerings by expanding into the sanitary pump market. The shift in focus resulted in tremendous growth and multiple plant and manufacturing expansions over the next 20 years and continues to drive the company forward.
Over the past decade, Ampco launched a new division, Ampco Applied Products. This Division is focused on creating efficient commercial mixing and blending products built around Ampco’s industry-leading pumps. From powder mixers and shear blenders to dry blenders and powder inducers, the AAP group has introduced products that make hard to handle media easier and more effectively processed.
Ampco Pumps Company meets ISO 9001:2015 requirements for the design and manufacture of new positive displacement, centrifugal sanitary, marine, and industrial pumps. Ampco’s positive displacement remanufacturing process also meets the requirements for ISO 9001:2015 certification.

Patented ZP3 Technology Offers Versatility
The Ampco engineers are always looking for ways to innovate and add more efficiency to our product lines.
The ZP3 is a great example. Our team employed the best features of all our ZP Series positive displacement pumps, and added Ampco’s patented front-loading seal design and CIP-ability… all while maintaining maximum efficiency.
Customers have embraced the ZP3 with its ease-of-maintenance and greater uptime.
Ampco’s seal design eliminates all dead zones in the pump too. The ZP3 offers a hardened seal face combination of tungsten carbide and silicon carbide that generates less heat, promotes longer seal life, and is leading in durability.

Ampco Engineers Enjoy a Good Challenge
Ampco’s entry into the craft brewing market was one born of a challenge faced by brewers that they brought to Ampco.
Always looking for new and exciting ways to employ pump technology, Ampco’s engineers were inspired to help brewers mitigate ongoing and costly leaking seal problems.
Ampco achieved a solution by developing a unique seal configuration to overcome heat and product build-up. Thus the advent of the CB+ Craft Brew Pump and its introduction to the brewing market.
