SRS Crisafulli engineers, manufactures, sells, and services versatile high capacity pumps, dredges, power units, accessories, and spare parts, in both standard and custom configurations, to customers in five market segments. SRS Crisafulli products are used in a wide variety of applications including transfer of fluids in large volumes, from clear water to slurries with high concentrations of solids in solution, and dredging of municipal and industrial wastes, including toxic and non-toxic materials.
Over fifty years, SRS Crisafulli has earned a reputation for building reliable, high-value products supported by superior service, and leadership in its product groups.
Three brothers - Angelo, Frank, and Joe Crisafulli - founded the Company in 1966 in Glendive, Montana, which is still operations headquarters. The original product was a patented double suction impeller used in high capacity pumps to irrigate family farms along Montana’s Yellowstone River. The original pumps, sometimes referred to as PTO trailer pumps (for power take off), are still active in the product line.
In 1982, Dick Memhard, through his firm, Memhard Investment Bankers, organized an investor group to buy the business. Since 1982, SRS Crisafulli has grown approximately six fold, broadened and improved its product line, developed a professional management team and the various systems required to function in today’s competitive international markets.
Founded with the technology of cutting, bending, and welding flat steel into finished products, SRS Crisafulli began life as a fabricator. Fabrication of steel remains SRS Crisafulli's core manufacturing process, supported by engineering and assembly of complex electro/hydraulic systems, and the use of computers and modern software in the design process.
SRS Crisafulli’s engineering and manufacturing technologies enable the Company to build an exceptionally broad product line and to customize products for customers.
As of 2018, we have sold our pumps, portable dredges, and power units in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, France, (French) New Guinea, Haiti, Hungary, Jamaica, Japan, South Korea, Laos (Lao PDR), Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia (Siberia), Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, United States, and Venezuela , and Vietnam.
A 50 year tradition. Reliable is rooted in the Crisafulli philosophy going back to the Company’s beginning when three Crisafulli brothers started Crisafulli Pump Company to build pumps to irrigate their own farms and ranches along the Yellowstone River in Eastern Montana. Naturally, building pumps for themselves, reliability was their priority. Today, that attitude is imbued in Company personnel in all parts of the business. Building reliable products is second nature for the Crisafulli staff.
Practical backgrounds. Many Company engineering and manufacturing personnel grew up on the farms and ranches of Montana and Wyoming where working outdoors with heavy machinery is a way of life. These men and women have to depend on their machinery in the field for their personal safety and to enable them to get their day’s work done before sunset.
Long-service staff. Low turnover and many long-service employees help sustain the Company’s emphasis on building reliable products. In the shop, 70% of the staff has more than ten years of service, including the Shop Foreman who has thirty years of service. Our former Sales Manager had twenty-six years of service before her recent retirement.
Graduate engineers on staff. The Company employs graduate engineers in sales, engineering, and manufacturing. These engineers are trained to design, build, and sell reliable products.
Established product line. Many of the Company’s products have been active in the product line for years. The Company refines and improves these products continuously, always seeking to provide customer with “Best Value.” Reliability is a big part of the value equation at Crisafulli.
Established supply chain. SRS Crisafulli has well established supply lines with vendors thoroughly familiar with our requirements.
Established procedures. For years, we have had carefully crafted procedures aimed at building products to plans and specifications drawn by professional engineers.
Strong financial position. A strong financial position enables Crisafulli to operate in a stable atmosphere with an absence of crisis. We can and do focus on quality and attention to detail.
Modest warranty costs. The Company’s modest annual warranty cost is evidence of the success of Crisafulli’s focus on building reliable products.
