Pump and Filtration Industry Leader Worldwide for over 60 Years

It has been said that the success of any business comes from finding a need and fulfilling it.
In 1961, our founder, Jack Berg, saw a need in the surface finishing industry for better filtration to improve plating quality and reduce rejects. Armed with only the experience gained as a manufacturer’s representative selling filters to platers and a desire to be in business for himself, he took the plunge and opened a small storefront business selling pumps, filter chambers and filter cartridges.

From that humble beginning, SERFILCO has grown to become a multi-national manufacturer of a wide range of filtration and liquid handling products serving many industries. With plants in North America as well as operations overseas, plus a worldwide network of sales representatives, we are strategically positioned to supply the needs of our customers.

Over the past six decades, we’ve seen many changes in the field of Surface Treatment, Chemical Processing and Chemical Manufacturing industries. As these changes were taking place, equipment was also changing. Newer and better designs, along with a broader array of chemically resistant materials are being used to provide the tools needed to produce more effectively and efficiently, as well as providing greater safety for operators and the environment.  SERFILCO takes great pride in its role as a Trailblazer in bringing many of these advances to the marketplace.  Magnetically coupled pumps, vertical pumps, externally mounted single and double mechanical seal pumps, all-plastic filtration systems, and pumped agitation systems using Eductors to agitate process and cleaning solutions can all be tracked back to the foresight, ingenuity and perseverance of SERFILCO people.

For us, the first 60 years were a learning period during which time we accumulated two generations of experience in meeting customer needs and solving problems with products that are the benchmark of the industry.

As SERFILCO enters its 7th decade leading the market in design, manufacture and distribution of Chemical Handling Equipment it is easy to look back at the amazing changes that have taken place in our industry including many referenced above.  However, in keeping with our traditions we choose to look forward with excitement and anticipation to the future, and, through our commitment to continuous improvement and innovation overcoming any new challenges ahead.
