PORT ORANGE, FL, June 8, 2009 -- Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co. Inc., a full-service provider of high quality pumps, pumping equipment and engineering expertise, has been awarded Contract GS-07F-0140V by the Unites States General Service Administration (GSA) to provide pumping equipment to U.S. Government agencies.

The five-year contract establishes the terms and conditions, including special government pricing. The new contract provides specified GSA discounts and fast shipment to federal customers. The GSA contract ensures that Thompson Pump is a recognized and able supplier of products for government use. In addition, it provides assurance that Thompson Pump products are of the highest quality and the company model is ethical and professional.

Thompson Pump products are immediately available to U.S. government agencies, as well as state and local governments under the GSA Cooperative Purchasing program. More information about Thompson Pump can be found in the GSA eLibrary. Orders can be placed online through the GSA Advantage website.

"Our new GSA contract will significantly streamline the purchasing process for our federal, state and local government customers," said Bill Thompson, President, Thompson Pump. "This is an important step in how we serve our country and customers. It is both a responsibility and an opportunity, and we couldn't be happier. Our GSA contract will expand our already substantial customer base within the U.S. government. This contract is the first of many initiatives we are currently working on to ensure that we offer our government customers competitive pricing, flexibility, ease of purchase and variety."

As part of GSA Schedule 84, Thompson Pump products can be purchased as emergency preparedness items. This allows state and local agencies to be proactive and prepare for emergencies instead of waiting for a major disaster to occur.

Thompson Pump offers a variety of portable pumps ranging in sizes from 2 to18 inches and provides engineering services and special applications consulting for complicated wellpoint, bypass or multiple pump systems.

The United States General Service Administration (GSA) provides a centralized delivery system of products and services to the federal government, leveraging its enormous buying power to get the best value for taxpayers. Founded in 1949, GSA manages more than one-fourth of the government's total procurement dollars and influences the management of $500 billion in federal assets, including 8,600 government-owned or leased buildings and 208,000 vehicles.
