About Wilo USA
1872. Louis Opländer founded Wilo AG as a copper a brass factory, later introducing the world to the first circulating pump. Wilo quickly grew and expanded internationally. Today, we now have over 70 subsidiaries and approximately 6,000 employees worldwide.
1971. The first EMU submersible sewage pumps arrived in America. At first, little notice was paid to these bright orange pumping machines, but as time passed and experience grew, the popularity of EMU submersible pumps grew into a following, and from there into an industry legend.
1985. EMU mixers were introduced in America. They drew attention quickly and were installed in several plant sites throughout the country.
2003. Wilo North America was founded in Calgary, Canada.
2003. WILO AG purchased EMU Gmbh in Germany through a mutual agreement.
2005. Wilo-EMU became a subsidiary of Wilo North America, with headquarters in Thomasville, Georgia. Later in 2007, the manufacturing facility was built in Thomasville.
2005. Wilo North America opened offices in Illinois and brought the high efficiency Stratos circulator, along with additional building services products to American market.
2010. EMU in Georgia and Wilo in Illinois merged, forming one company Wilo USA. Offices in Calgary, Canada remain, and operate under the name Wilo Canada.
Today. Wilo USA continues to offer highly reliable and extremely durable submersible pumps & mixers, as well as a full line of high efficiency pumps, commercial pumps, and well pumps. With the headquarters in Rosemont, IL and manufacturing in Thomasville, GA, Wilo USA provides pumps and mixer solutions for the entire country.
WILO's success is supported by many pillars. And by values that we pursue without compromise. Wilo provides the technology and expertise for the operation and application of high-value pumps and pump systems for heating and cooling technology, air-conditioning, water supply and sewage disposal. The Wilo brand and all associated product brands under the Wilo umbrella set the standard for technical performance and efficiency. This is supported by an outstanding service offer in all European countries and increasingly in other countries, from Asia to North America.
Wilo has set itself the objective of growing profitably by creating customer added value. However, our demands go way beyond the simple fulfillment of customer requirements, because pump systems are of decisive importance for the primary needs of life and for conserving our environment for future generations. In addition, we aim to use the higher efficiency and lower life cycle costs of our products to achieve economic success for wholesalers, craftsmen, planners and, last but not least, the users of our systems.
With technical progress, requirements for the efficiency and reliability of systems for conveying fluids also continually grow. For this reason, Wilo is continuing to expand its application expertise and is increasingly applying it to adjacent market segments. We are deeply ingrained in the methods and principles of German engineering technology.
