TANEYTOWN — Dresser Pump Division, a subsidiary of the Texas-based Dresser Industries Inc., won a contract from the Army Corps of Engineers to provide replacement water pump parts to a Washington pumping station.
Dresser will supply repair parts for Worthington brand suction and discharge pumps to Dalecarlia Pumping Station, which supplies water to the District of Columbia, said Tom E. Arvin, parts marketing manager for the pump manufacturer.
The sewage and irrigation pump manufacturer won the $174,500 contract in May.
"The company is obviously quite pleased to get a contract of that magnitude," Arvin said. "We're doing a lot of good things here in Taneytown."
The original 36-year-old pumps, which were bought from Dresser, a world-wide supplier of five major trade-name pumps, are used to pump waste water around the District of Columbia to treatment plants.
Dresser Pump Division was the only company to submit a bid for the contract.
