Who We Are
For over 35 years, The Blumenauer Corporation has been an industry leader, providing Florida, the Caribbean, South America, and beyond with quality water pumps and accessories for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
Roy C. Blumenauer, the founder of The Blumenauer Corporation, moved from Frederick, Maryland to central Florida in 1956. During the late 1950’s and early 1960’s Florida was starting to see an influx of growth, spurred with the construction of what is now known as the Kennedy Space Center. At the time, Roy worked for Hicks and Ingle Mechanical Contractors and was involved in both the construction of rocket launch facilities for NASA at Cape Canaveral and also for facilities of Pratt and Whitney, one of the world’s leading jet-engine manufacturers. Soon thereafter, plans for the development of Walt Disney World were announced and Mr. Blumenauer realized the potential for growth in the Orlando area.
The company Blumenauer and Associates was formed in 1973, supplying the mechanical contractors of Florida with a variety of pump and boiler products to meet the demands of the rapidly growing market. Blumenauer and Associates expanded with the Florida market and in 1980, not only changed its name to The Blumenauer Corporation, but also became manufacturer’s representative of the Grundfos Pumps Corporation for Florida in addition to acquiring other major product lines.
Today, The Blumenauer Corporation is a leading distributor in the pump industry and represents manufacturers from around the world. The Blumenauer Corporation’s main warehouse facility and service center is located in Orlando and is stocked with a wide selection of pumps, valves and accessories to meet today’s pumping needs. The Blumenauer Corporation is also an authorized warranty service center for Grundfos Pumps in the southeastern United States.
Mr. Blumenauer is now enjoying his retirement, but his vision continues with his son, Wes Blumenauer. Wes Blumenauer, President and CEO of the Blumenauer Corporation, is a graduate of the University of Florida and has more than 30 years experience in the pump industry. Just as his father envisioned new and expanding markets in Florida, Wes continues to expand the company’s quality product lines and service around the globe. With an eye towards the integration of new cost-efficient, cutting edge, and eco-friendly technologies into the pump industry, our mission here at The Blumenauer Corporation is to provide a complete line of innovative and high quality products, technical support, and competitive market pricing to our valued customers.
