Powerwise was formed in the UK in 1961 by John Alfred Holmes, a general pump salesman who recognized a need for a pump for handling ink. He worked from home and from there the company grew into larger facilities and over 50 employees. In 1985, the company branched out into the US, and has since outgrown the UK offices with sales throughout the world.
Powerwise Ink Pumps USA became the headquarters for its range of ink pumps, filters and mixers. The company says that thanks to the internet, Powerwise now has customers in more than 40 countries. In addition to its stock pumps, ink filters and mixers; the company also has a pump repair service and custom designed stainless steel tanks and lids.
