Our History

KETO is a relatively new company that can call on more than 100 years' of experience and expertise.

KETO Pumps arose in 2012 from the merger of KETO Pumps Australia, First Africa Pumps and Tri-Invest. This consolidation was followed by the 2013 acquisition of Pump Technology Services, an ISO9001 quality accredited Australian technology company specialising in the supply, service and technical support for electric submersible, transfer, process pumps and associated equipment in the mining, oil, gas and process industries.

In 2015 KETO further enhanced its footprint in the United States with the acquisition of three businesses in North America: RPM Services, Inc. of Salt Lake City, Utah; Arizona Pump & Machine, Inc. of Tucson, Arizona; and Bakersfield Machine Company, Inc. of Bakersfield, California. Bakersfield Machine Company was established in 1914 and began expanding out of California into Arizona and Utah at the turn of the century.

These acquisitions were part of the dynamic expansion plans of KETO Pumps to become a leader in the supply and service of pumps and related equipment into mining and associated industries. Today KETO has manufacturing, service and sales offices in Australia, South Africa and the USA, complemented by a global network of distributors and authorised service providers. KETO continues to grow worldwide, providing customers with unparalleled breadth and depth of solutions and service.
