Continental Pump Company was established in late 1946 by George F. Heath Sr. in St. Louis, Mo., as his main avenue to manufacture the pumps that intrigued him. Mr. Heath had worked in the pump business for many years. With the arrangement of a handful of Manufacturers representatives throughout the country in the pump industry, they traded experience, became good friends and business partners. Then along came the success story of this company.
George F. Heath Company a company established in 1952 to market Continental Pump Co in Helical Screw Pumps' initially, but subsequently and currently 'Progressive Cavity Pumps'. There were other pumps as well, such as Shallow Well Pumps, Submersible Pumps and the so-called Utility Pump line now known as the CP Models.
Continental made parts and pumps interchangeable with Moyno. 'It was not just Pumps and Parts to be substituted, but the long knowledge of application that we have to pass on and share with the Industry that required the unique 'Helical Screw Principal'. Continental was not just offering a Pump, but more the solving the problems of moving liquids, slurries, pastes, sludges and waste materials that only can be effectively and economically handled by Progressing Cavity Pumps. When a pump can eliminate buckets, shovels, scoops, conveyors and back work and if it is properly designed, manufactured and applied it can fulfill a needed solution to hundreds of Industry's tough material handling problems. This is the reason why we have specialized in this particular pump. ' Mr. Heath was quoted in saying.
George Heath Jr. has been involved with Continental Pump Company since 1981. He has been in the manufacturing and the sales aspect of the company bringing his knowledge to these departments. In 2000 he was promoted as President of Continental Pump Company, having a strong goal to push the company to its next level in quality, manufacturing and customer service.
