A proud tradition of innovation
TKL has a rich history that began during Australia’s gold rush era. The brand was originally founded as Thompson & Co. in 1875. By 1905, the company had pioneered the system of alluvial mining by hydraulic sluicing, and their gravel pumps were in use throughout Australia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Holland and the Federated Malay States. The company made major manufacturing contributions to both world wars, then reorganized to meet the growing post-war demand for electrical power.
In 1987, the brand merged with Kelly & Lewis to form Thompsons, Kelly & Lewis (TKL), creating the largest pump manufacturer in Australia. The brand was acquired by Flowserve in 2004.
TKL’s proven designs reflect more than a century of experience in mining’s toughest applications. In addition to its innovations, the brand still produces exact replacements of designs from the 1980s and 1990s, which continue to be used to this day. This enables simple changeouts and replacement of these robust heritage pumps without pipe modifications.
