Tracing its history back to 1922, ProFlow has gained a reputation for technical expertise and high-quality fabrication.

ProFlow Inc. celebrates its 100th year in business this summer. After its founding in 1922 as Hungerford, a supplier of dairy equipment, the company transitioned over time to sell household fixtures and refrigeration in the 1940s, and then water systems and related equipment in the 50s. In the 1960s, it shifted into industrial pump distribution before eventually changing its name to Pump Services Corporation. Shortly thereafter, it began producing its first modular systems that incorporated pumps, piping, valves, and other components mounted together in a compact frame that comprised a working system.

The firm took on its current name, ProFlow Inc., in 1998 to better reflect its system capabilities. Today, ProFlow is a recognized leader in the design, manufacture, and service of compact fluid processing skids and equipment. ProFlow serves a wide range of customers in industries ranging from chemical and pulp and paper to pharmaceuticals, personal care, and other industries in more than 30 countries worldwide.

What really makes ProFlow stand out is the breadth and depth of the ProFlow team’s application knowledge. Whether it’s precise metering or mixing, processing at precise temperatures and pressures, or handling aggressive chemicals, ProFlow has the experience and capabilities to meet those needs.

ProFlow also boasts an impressive array of certifications for welding, pressure vessel construction, panel fabrication, and quality processes. Additionally, ProFlow’s ability to control and manage all aspects of a project, from concept to piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID) development, 3D renderings, detailed fabrication drawings, and concise operating manuals differentiate ProFlow from other engineering and fabrication companies. Whether working for small laboratories experimenting with new products or formulations, or expanding production for some of the world’s largest manufacturing firms, ProFlow has the people, processes, and facilities to ensure success.

According to President & CEO, Chris FitzGerald, “ProFlow is incredibly proud of its people, its engineering expertise, and its fabrication excellence, and looks forward to continuing its heritage as a Connecticut manufacturer.”
