Major rebrand changes to water management industry

Oct 2017


Redefining Australia’s dewatering, pump rental and environmental services industry, the integration of a group of water management companies has formed Pumps United, offering a one-stop shop for water management. 

Pumps United delivers tailored, turnkey dewatering and environmental management solutions, encompassing every aspect of water management, dewatering and related requirements. 

The Pumps United rebrand unites the people, capability and expertise of Mobile Dewatering, Vortex Hire, MDW Pump Rentals QLD, Prestige Pump Rentals, MDW Environmental Services and Aquahire Water Treatment. 

The alignment of these operations increases the businesses capacity and significantly strengthens the customer offer, providing industry-leading water management solutions, Australia wide.

Servicing the mining, government, construction and industrial sectors, Pumps United has over 45 years of water management expertise. 

Pumps United Executive Director, James Sebbes, said the merger of these six independently successful businesses will change the way that industry thinks about water management.

“Groundwater can seriously delay a project but the red tape and knowledge required to meet regulatory standards can do the same thing,” he said. 

“Where clients previously needed to engage multiple businesses, Pumps United can now manage every facet of dewatering; from the design and implementation of pumping systems, to licensing, engagement, compliance and reporting to regulatory bodies.

“Our winning point of difference is expert knowledge of our customers’ industries, from Tier One major infrastructure and mining projects to smaller, local construction sites. 

“The businesses that have come together to form Pumps United each have their own thick file of case studies, signifying their position at the cutting edge of their respective arenas.”

The business has made a particular commitment to research and development, pledging to pursue innovation and advanced technology. Pumps United maintains active global research and development programs and has dynamic working relationships with the world’s market leaders.

“We have set the standard for quality and effectiveness and have set new benchmarks for exceeding regulatory compliance. Some major projects have only proceeded due to our award winning unique water treatment systems. Our solutions are holistic, tailored and delivered to diminish risk, cut costs and improve environmental outcomes.” 

With a rapidly expanding team of experts based across operations in Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia, Pumps United offers 24 hour, seven day a week service across Australia.

Pumps United is available to service projects of any scale from today onward. For further information on the scope of services available, head to or contact us on 1300 137 137.
