Precision Pumping Systems is a 2nd generation family-owned and operated pump station and controls manufacturer. The beginnings of PPS date back to 1972. That year, Nick Purdy founded Silver Creek Supply in the tiny town of Picabo, Idaho near the world famous fly fishing destination and trout stream of Silver Creek. Silver Creek Supply started out as a local distributor and installer of agricultural irrigation systems – wheellines, handlines, mainline, center pivots and pumping systems.
As the company grew it diversified into a wide variety of interests – one of them, the manufacture of packaged pumping systems. In the late 90’s the Purdy’s sold Silver Creek Supply, but they kept the pump station manufacturing portion of Silver Creek – and Precision Pumping Systems was born. Today Nick Purdy remains very active with numerous pursuits; his three sons, Randy, Pat & Mike, have since taken over the daily management of PPS.
Since inception, PPS has engineered and built thousands of packaged pumping systems and control panels that have been shipped across the United States and overseas. These have ranged from 30 gpm booster stations to 15,000 gpm pump systems and control panels from ½ hp up to 700 hp.
