About Us

Almar Pumps was created from Almar Metal Products, a company formed by Alistair Heyworth who had his own Steel Fabrication plant in Blackburn, employing over 200. It was a semi retirement scheme, to continue servicing a specialised market in the paper mill manufacture business, after the original company had been broken up.

The company had purchased stock and components, telephone numbers and customer database from Datapumps, a local firm which had closed down, but had been trading for over 25 years, and was the victim of the economic slump of 2008. With engineering experience and Data Pumps sub contracted fitters and sales manager, the company was formed, with a website called UKPUMPS.CO.UK to aid marketing, as mail order and site visits was the direction in which the company wanted to go.

The company will supply both pumps and sundry equipment to anywhere in Europe, with site visits and installation accross most of the north west of England, and Isle of Man.
