The pumps primarily serviced over that period have been fresh and sea water products used on a wide range of Defence platforms.

Aussie Pumps chief engineer John Hales welcomed the announcement, saying, "The pumps we supplied for fuel and lube essential services on the RAN’s NUSHIPs require us to expand our test equipment. Thus we will be able to ensure that repairs run through a rotatable pool can be processed promptly and tested in accordance with the manufacturer’s original standards."

CIRCOR IMO Allweiler products are used on a wide range of RAN vessels, from FFGs to Choules, HMAS Success, Anzac, and both Hobart and Canberra Class ships.
Australian Pump operates from a 2.5-acre site in Sydney’s north-west business district.
