Global Supplier of Innovative, Tough Submersible Pumps for the Underground Mining Market

PumpEng, founded in 2011, is an Australian owned and operated manufacturer and supplier specialising in tough submersible pumps for mining, construction and industrial dewatering. 


ounder Paul Meneghel has experience in submersible pumps and mining stretching back to the 1980s. PumpEng evolved from a 2001 venture between Paul and the owners of Galvin Engineering. They set out to improve the design of mass-produced pump components for Australian operating conditions. The PumpEng team built on their own experience by consulting with Australian maintenance and mining staff to become a well-established specialist submersible pump supplier to several industry sectors, with underground mining as the prime focus.

The PumpEng vision has been to be the specialist in ‘tough submersible dewatering pumps’ based on:

  • Innovative thinking: Solutions are backed by a vigorous R&D program and commitment to improving product performance and installation practices.

  • Availability: Product sales, hire and aftercare accessible via a branch network.

  • Reliability: A tried and tested pumping range designed to last longer.

  • Consultation: The PumpEng Way is a step-by-step process of exploration, inspection and delivery to ensure the right pump is used correctly.

  • Data: Ongoing support is continuously sought and provided through repair data, site inspections and quarterly reporting to create sustainable improvement.

The PumpEng goal is to create a good day at work for staff and clients. A good day at work means a different thing for different people. However, if the right pump for the job is selected, installed and maintained correctly, the chance of pump failure is greatly reduced. Less pump failure means significantly less impact on project productivity, safety and the bottom line. Performance data from satisfied clients is testimony to the success of this approach.

PumpEng has developed a team of experienced staff whose mission is to create a good day at work for customers. This commitment extends to the design, manufacture and supply of pumps, right through to the expedient repair/rebuild and full aftermarket support of the product range. This work is all aligned with the PumpEng Core Values and Behaviours. PumpEng has also partnered with major foundries and quality engineering facilities located within Australia and abroad to facilitate the reliable supply of quality parts and pumps.
