The company’s engineering facilities allow the prompt build of Layne Bowler products and Brown Brothers’ Melbourne facility has full testing capabilities.

Layne Bowlers’ history can be traced back to 1882 when inventor Mahlon Layne drilled his first well and found himself in need of a pump to deliver the water from his well.

He also understood that the pump he required would need to be different from all existing pumps of that time.

In 1903 Mahlon Layne and entrepreneur P D Bowler got together and created the Layne Bowler Company in the Mississippi basin where they manufactured vertical turbine pumps for use in cased wells or where the water level was below the practical limits of surface pumps.

Layne Bowler Pump Company Inc. was established in Ankara, Turkey in 1965, where the innovation and engineering development never stopped with Layne Bowler continuing to introduce new pump ranges.

Layne Bowlers premises in Ankara covers 42,000sqm where qualified engineers and experienced technicians continue to serve the energy, industrial, municipal and agricultural markets.
