For more than 56 years, JAECO FLUID SYSTEMS, Inc., and its predecessor companies, has been providing experience, quality and performance to the fluid process and water treatment industry.
Founded in 1958 by Joseph A. Eagan, whose name became the acronym for the company, JAECO has, over the years, distinguished itself as a prominent manufacturer of robust, purpose-built, reliable, positive displacement chemical metering pumps and accessories.
Starting out with a line of packed plunger pumps, that became very successful, particularly in the agricultural irrigation industry, JAECO developed a full line of hydraulically actuated diaphragm operated pumps in the 1960s. With this expanded product line JAECO created an excellent business in the fabrication of skid systems for applications in a wide variety of chemical and waste water treatment industries throughout the 1970s. Also during this time the company acquired a complete line of mechanical compression couplings known as GRIP-SEAL as well as a line of check valves manufactured by the Stewart Company. This rounded out the company’s product offering and greatly expanded the capabilities.
During the 1980s the company was reorganized as JAECO-STEWART when a former executive of the JAECO PUMP COMPANY purchased the organization and decided to focus exclusively on the manufacture of pumps, check valves and fittings. The company was twice sold over the next twenty years but continued to maintain its reputation for quality products.
In 2000 the company was purchased by new owners who renamed it JAECO FLUID SYSTEMS, INC. A progressive transition to remake the organization into a full-service provider of pumps and accessories for a wider market segment was initiated over the decade culminating in a full return to the fabrication business in 2013.
