Airwell Group | Pump Flow Testing & Dewatering Pumps
Airwell Group Pty Ltd is a family owned company that has been trading since 1985. In the early 1980s Managing Director Alan Brown set about designing and building water pumping systems for the agricultural industry in Western Australia. The system needed to operate remotely from power, be economical to run and safer and more reliable than existing water pumping methods such as windmills and solar pumping systems.
After several design attempts and many modifications later, the first Airwell pumps were sold to the agricultural market in 1984. On the back of continued success of the pumping system and its unique design Alan was issued with a patent in 1986 for the Airwell Pump. After winning the Commercial Inventors Award at the Newdegate Field Day in 1987 and the success of the pump, Airwell Pumps Pty Ltd the company was officially launched in 1988.
