Tuthill has a long history of manufacturing – over 130 years! Our family business began as we made bricks that became Chicago’s foundation. Innovation eventually drove us to begin manufacturing rotating equipment that would serve other foundations – human life. This is the core of our existence and what drives Tuthill to diversify and better serve the needs of the world. The extensive list of pumps and blower technology manufactured over our history powered industries including agriculture, food & beverage, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, oil & gas, construction, medical, and mining.
Tuthill Ft. Wayne and Lenexa
In 1961 Tuthill purchased Ossian Engineering Company and transitioned it to the name of Tuthill Transfer Systems. The red pump has long been known as the pump from Ft. Wayne, Indiana and customer demand required Tuthill to grow. In 2020, Tuthill expanded its production of Fill-Rite fuel transfer pumps by opening a second manufacturing facility in Lenexa, Kansas. This location compliments the operations in Ft. Wayne where not only Fill-Rite products are designed and manufactured, but so are Precision meters and Sotera chemical transfer pumps.
