Bingham Pumps

Willamette Iron Works, later the Willamette Iron & Steel Yard, was founded in Portland, Oregon following the Civil War in 1865.1 In January of 1891, Willamette Iron Works was contracted to supply the city of Portland, Oregon with fire hydrants.2 In the early 20th century, Bingham Pump Company was created as a part of Willamette Iron Works. The Willamette Valve Company was part of the Willamette family of companies which had a worldwide reputation for superior quality and design. Bingham Willamette made the valves that serviced the Three Mile Island Nuclear Facility. Industry experts say that if their valves had not performed at 120% of design, the "incident" at Three Mile Island would have been a meltdown.3 Bingham Pumps was sold to the Guy F. Atkinson company in the 1960’s and then later sold to Sulzer Pump Company.
