The Yeomans Brothers went into business on the North Side of Chicago in 1898. They specialized in building the first vertical shaft bilge pumps, and later expanded their business by adding sewage pumps for the wastewater treatment and process markets. In 1959 Yeomans began making submersible pumps which they still make today through 200 HP.
In 2008 Yeomans was purchased by Grundfos and is based in Aurora, IL. Since 2013 Gilbert Pump & Mechanical has Represented Yeomans for the State of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
