WESTERN PUMP acquires DOEHRMAN COMPANY, Inc.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct 1, 2021
San Diego, CA – WESTERN PUMP, Inc., is proud to announce its recent acquisition of DOEHRMAN COMPANY, Inc., and DCI/SOUTHWEST DIRECT-LIFT & GARAGE OUTFITTERS.
DOEHRMAN COMPANY, Inc., is the leading automotive service equipment distributor & contractor in the southwestern United States specializing in the design, construction, installation, and maintenance of automobile dealership service and parts departments, and heavy-duty truck and transit vehicle maintenance facilities. DCI/SOUTHWEST DIRECT-LIFT & GARAGE OUTFITTERS, a division of DOEHRMAN, serves the B2C residential and home garage markets with equipment and custom-designed workstations, toolboxes, mezzanines, shelving systems, and more.
On the acquisition of his company, DOEHRMAN President Gary Doehrman, stated, “WESTERN PUMP is an outstanding organization with great people, and we are honored to become part of the team. I am truly excited for our employees as they enter this exciting next chapter of their professional careers”.
WESTERN PUMP’s growth into Arizona, up until this point, has been ongoing but limited to petroleum equipment installations and services; however, the acquisition of DOEHRMAN COMPANY, Inc., changes the landscape and creates opportunities all around. WESTERN PUMP’s interest and involvement in automotive service equipment dates to the mid 90’s when it sold, installed, and serviced lubrication and compressed air equipment. By the early 2000’s, WESTERN PUMP was tackling ground-up vehicle maintenance facility construction projects in addition to its current scopes of work as a full-service petroleum equipment contractor. Moving forward, the company will focus efforts on expanding its market share in both the automotive and petroleum equipment markets.
“It will be an honor to work alongside of Gary Doehrman and the entire DOEHRMAN team! The core competencies of each company (now one) will provide tremendous growth opportunities for us all – and we look forward to the possibilities that the future will bring”, said WESTERN PUMP CEO, Ryan Rethmeier.
