Cornell Pump Company is one of the world’s premier pump manufacturers, serving a wide variety of industrial and agricultural markets across the globe. Their pumps are built to withstand some of the most demanding conditions. They are precisely engineered and constructed with high-quality materials for unmatched performance and sustainability.

Cornell pumps are backed by a global support team and regional staff to provide you with the best in customer service. They understand what their customers want and need, and their commitment is to give you the service and support you deserve.


The foundations for Cornell began back in 1946 when five pioneering individuals left another pump company and headed out on their own. They familiarized themselves with the most common pump failures (pressure spikes, motor bearings and loading capacity being three of the typical issues). They established Cornell to service any model of pump with innovative solutions.

In 1949, the engineers at Cornell sought to improve the way irrigation pumps were designed and manufactured. They created the groundbreaking “Rain-O-Flow” pump and it solved many of the common repair problems. Later this year, they established the Pump School, which evolved from lectures they gave on applied hydraulics.

Before long, other farmers and industries were reaching out to Cornell with their specific pump needs. Cornell heeded the call and branched out their designs and manufacturing with a variety of new pump products. From dam construction and ammonia pumps for food warehouses to hydro-transport to the Army Corps of Engineers, Cornell kept blazing new paths in different industries. Even the irrigation system used in Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami (home of many Super Bowls) utilizes Cornell Pumps to keep the turf ideal. Cornell Pumps are used throughout Disneyland, as well!

In 1994, Cornell introduced the Cycloseal system, which eliminated leaks without the need for flush water. Redi-Prime is another Cornell innovation, using a patented vacuum system to prime and re-prime the pump. In recent years, Cornell has continued to lead the way with new innovations and additional pump series to handle all types of industrial and agricultural pumping needs.
