Xylem Flygt A-C Custom Pump originates from Allis Chalmers Manufacturing; a U.S. manufacturer of large machinery for various industries with origins dating back over 150 years. Starting in 1844, Thomas Chalmers founded the P.W. Gates Iron Works, whose foundry and blacksmiths shop produced plows, wagons and mill equipment. Then in an 1861 sheriffﾒs auction in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Edward P. Allis purchased the Reliance Works, which produced steam turbines and other mill equipment. Due to a financial panic in 1873 that saw Edward Allis overextended, the Reliance Works was forced into bankruptcy, and in turn reorganized into the Edward P. Allis Company. Meanwhile Thomas Chalmers, founder of the P.W. Gates iron works, founded Fraser & Chalmers in 1872 to produce mining machinery, boilers and pumps.
