Service Pump and Supply, Inc., was incorporated in 1980 by Danny & Barbara Vance, with headquarters located in Huntington, West Virginia, with the motto of “we put service first.” Of the 18 years in existence, Service Pump & Supply has evolved as a major distributor for a variety of pumps and services. One major accomplishment has been the title of top distributor in the United States by Flygt Corporation, due to a year of invoicing that exceeded $11 million. The company boasts a newly renovated 94,000 square foot facility and three branches in Jeff, Kentucky; Danville, West Virginia; and Washington, Pennsylvania. It has a total of 80 full-time employees.

Service Pump and Supply sells and services pumps, electric motors, controls, systems, blowers, pipes and accessories. It also has moved into the pump rental business and manufacturing. Service Pump and Supply markets its products and services to the mining industry and municipal and industrial customers in a seven-state area, which includes Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland.

Through the GGWFP technical assistance, Service Pump and Supply received training in lean manufacturing. One of the events in particular was on the manufacture of a piece of equipment used in the mining industry. Before this training, the production was very limited. With the need to gear up to do runs in the hundreds, this event helped change the way the company approached all aspects of manufacturing and prepare it for the demand of orders to come.

Danny Vance, president, stated, “Lean training helped us double our manufacturing of rock dusters, and will inspire us to work more effectively throughout the company.”
