Hydro Scotford Builds New Pump Service Center

Hydro’s worldwide pump aftermarket service organization has exhibited significant growth during a time of sharp decline in many industries. In 2010, Hydro built a 5000HP Test Labdedicated to the pump aftermarket. In Fall of 2011, Hydro’s service capabilities expanded at their Edmonton operation outside of Vancouver.

To better serve pump users in the power generation, oil and gas, industrial, and municipal markets, Hydro Scotford (a subsidiary of Hydro Inc., a Chicago-based corporation), announced its move to a newly constructed facility in the Canadian province of Alberta. This modern 40,000 sq. ft. facility houses state-of-the-art equipment which Hydro Scotford uses for pump design, engineering, and manufacturing – providing pump users with customized and innovative solutions to their pump problems.

The new Hydro service center has over 80-tons of crane capacity and a large training room for pump users to study topics ranging from basic hydraulics to vibration and troubleshooting. Dennis Plaizier, Managing Director of Hydro Scotford, says “We are grateful to have this opportunity to grow into a new service center where our experienced staff can enhance their ability to provide value-added services to our customers, helping them increase pump reliability and performance.”

Hydro Scotford held their Open House event on September 7th, 2012, where pump users


enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and participated in a comprehensive shop tour to see first-hand Hydro’s capability to provide engineered pump rebuilds. The Fort Saskatchewan Record attended the event and covered the story – read their review.
