Thompson Pump & Manufacturing Co., Inc. of Port Orange, Fla. announced the recent move of their Myrtle Beach branch operation to a larger facility at 609 Seaboard Avenue. The new facility with over 8,900 total sq ft will better accommodate the company’s growing customer needs for rentals, sales, parts and service.

The Myrtle Beach branch office, one of 19 Thompson Pump branches nationwide, covers all of Horry, Georgetown, Dillon, Marion, and Florence Counties.

Under the direction of Operations Manager Toddy Massey, and Salesman Larry Watson, the branch provides a full line of Thompson Pump products for sale and rental and the expertise to provide solutions for the toughest dewatering, bypass and special pumping applications.

Thompson Pump will host an open house celebration on Friday, June 22. Customers will receive a free lunch, facility tours, and the opportunity to win prizes. In addition, Mandy of the Thompson Pump Blue Crew will make an appearance signing calendars. Corporate staff will provide insight into unusual and unique applications, new products, sewer bypass and field preventive maintenance and service.
