The Precision Pumping Systems Story

Precision Pumping Systems is based in Boise, Idaho where we specialize in the design and manufacture of pre-packaged pumping systems, pump control panels and remote monitoring and control systems. With PPS, you have a wide variety of stock and custom pump options that are manufactured in days, not weeks.

Our entire team is deeply committed to the customers we serve and the products we produce. This passion comes from over 40 years of history in the manufacturing of pump systems and our family roots in Idaho that date back over 130 years.

Our History

Precision Pumping Systems is a 2nd generation family-owned and operated pump station and controls manufacturer. Although the Purdy family has been doing business from it’s original location since 1883, 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.  Today with over 40 dedicated employees, PPS operates a manufacturing facility that is UL 508A, UL QCZJ, and ISO 9001:2015 certified.

Our Philosophy

In our heart we are still country folk, and we understand the significant investment that a pumping system or control panel represents.  So, we take a personal interest in every product we ship to ensure that it meets the exacting requirements of our customers, and if we do happen to fall short we will go to great lengths to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase.

We understand that to provide this level of service we must have the best team in the industry.  That is why we find the best possible people to join our team, we train them well, and we treat them with respect.

When you are ready to have PPS work on your project, please give us a call – our team is ready to help!
