Incorporated in 1981 as Water West Irrigation, American Pump has grown from a home run business to a recognized leader of customer service and quality products. Nathan Hancock & Val Brizzee started Water West Irrigation in Rexburg, Idaho with one pump rig and one crane. They were quickly recognized as honest, efficient, and dependable pump repairmen. In 1989, Nathan and Val separated the company and Nathan started American Pump.
Shortly after American Pump began, Nathan purchased a new building and opened a machine shop in Ucon, Idaho. After the unexpected death of Val Brizzee, American Pump purchased Water West Irrigation in 1990. American Pump has continued to grow with the addition of an electric motor rewind shop and pivot dealership.
American Pump is also current with new VFD technology. They sell and service the ABB drives. They can help you design a system that runs more efficiently and effectively to fit multiple pivots or corner arms. They will also work with your power company to help cost-share your improvements.
American Pump also sells and services house and community pumps. They can usually have your house pump fixed within less than 24 hours from the time you call. They are trained professionals for submersible pumps and constant pressure systems.
After many years of informally working together, in May of 2022, Thomas Drilling and American Pump formally combined forces and partnered together to form Amerian Pump & Drilling. Thomas Drilling began operations in 1977 with drilling and pump work and together with American Pump, they bring a combined 85+ years of industry excellence with a goal to provide a more comprehensive service range and knowledge base while continuing to provide exceptional service to our communities in the greater Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming regions.
