It all started in the town of Emmaboda in southern Sweden, where Per Alfred Stenberg, a blacksmith and mold maker, established a foundry in 1901. Two decades later, in 1922, an engineer named Hilding Flygt set up a pump and fan sales company in Stockholm. A newspaper advertisement brought the two companies into contact in 1929 and resulted in Stenberg and his brother starting to manufacture Flygt pumps in Emmaboda.
The major breakthrough for the company came in 1947 when Sixten Englesson, chief engineer, invented the first submersible drainage pump. The first submersible sewage pump was unveiled in 1956. During the 1970s, the product range was expanded to include mixers and other products.
Flygt represents a long history of pioneering the development of products and solutions for handling water and wastewater. WECI became the Flygt Representative for the Pacific NW in 1973. Together WECI and Xylem evaluate the varying needs of customers and help them find the right solutions for their application. The Flygt brand has been trusted for decades to ensure that water and wastewater treatment equipment keeps running at its best. Check out the newest pump from Fygt.
