ABOUT SUPERIOR PUMP
Superior Pump and Decko Products are the trading names of Michel Sales Inc. Superior Pump, based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is active in the design, manufacture, and marketing of residential and commercial water pumps with a strong direct presence on the American market.

Superior Pump was founded in 1999 by entrepreneur Chip Michel, with an extensive experience in the sector and a family that boasts an entrepreneurial history of over 100 years.

The Group, which developed from Pedrollo S.p.A. with some 1,200 employees, has grown to include the complementary businesses of Linz Electric (alternators and welders), Gread Elettronica (electronics and software), and Panelli (submersible pumps and motors). With the acquisition in December 2020 of Superior Pump, conducted through Pedrollo Group Inc., the Pedrollo Group expanded its leadership in hydraulic pump technology focusing on a direct presence in the North American market.

The Group is managed by the CEOs Alessandra and Giulio Pedrollo. Highly automated systems guarantee the competitiveness of the Group that has constantly invested in innovation, research and design and adopts original solutions in the fields of mechanics, design, electronics, and human skills.
