Shanley Pump is centrally located near Chicago, Illinois, USA.

We run and maintain a modern storage warehouse for inventory and a pump workshop. By doing this, we are able to react quickly to the needs of the customers and offer immediate delivery of pumps, pump packages with motors and pump spare parts.

We have the capability to repair every pump we sell.

Starting with a pump inquiry we spend many hours helping our pump customers study their applications before they buy a pump, and we offer trouble shooting expertise to pump users over the phone or via email, etc. 24 hours a day.

We provide analysis of fluids and operating conditions for assisting our customers in applying the correct pumps and materials of constructions for difficult pump applications. We then take this knowledge with us to the manufacturing stage, where we will build you a pump that is ideally suited to your unique needs for an excellent price.

Our History

photos of Larry Shanley Sr.In 1988, Larry Shanley Sr. founded our company, Shanley Pump and Equipment, Inc. Mr. Shanley has many years of specialty pump experience. He started working with pumps in 1965 as a pump application engineer at IMO Pumps, specializing in 3 rotor and 2 rotor positive displacement screw pumps. His keen interest in pumps blossomed and continues to this day, 47 years later. His expertise in positive displacement and special centrifugal pumps made him sought after in the pump market.

In 1970 he was hired by Roper pumps to manage their 3 rotor and progressive cavity pump sales. In 1978 he was hired by *Allweiler® pumps from Germany and started *Allweiler® Pump, Inc. for the North American distribution on *Allweiler® 3 rotor, 2 rotor progressive cavity and specialty centrifugal pump lines like Thermal Oil Pumps.

In 1988, Mr. Shanley decided to diversify his products to meet the needs of the market and started his own independent company. At Shanley Pump and Equipment, Inc. we are continually looking for new and up to date pump solutions for our specialty pump markets.

Shanley Pump was the exclusive importer for allweiler Pumps from Germany to North america from 1988 until allweiler was sold to Colfax in 2001.

Through the years we have added other important specialty pump product lines to our mix like EDUR Centrifugal Pumps, Liberty Process Equipment Progressive Cavity Pumps, Hilge® Beverage Transfer Pumps, SEIM® 3 Rotor Screw Pumps, Tecnium® Engineered Plastic Pumps and our newest product line, Speck® Thermal Oil Pumps.
