About EDSON International

Founded in 1859 in Boston, MA by inventor Jacob Edson, the company originally began manufacturing diaphragm pumps and specialty hardware for the commercial marine trade. The company's diaphragm pumps were first used in sewage pumping applications, resulting in the original horse-drawn "honey wagon." By the 1900s, Edson was manufacturing steering systems for sailing vessels, resulting in early relationships with the America's Cup race boats. World Wars I and II saw Edson's steering gear and bilge pumps used on freighters, liberty ships, and PT boats.

In 1956, Edson was purchased by the Keene family, who continue to own the firm today. Utilizing their time-tested diaphragm pump designs, Edson engineered holding tank pump out systems for marinas, yacht clubs and municipalities during the early 1980s and by doing so became a leader in helping to clean up and maintain the environment. Today, the Edson International Pump Division manufactures and supplies a full range of diaphragm pumps, pump out equipment, and vacuum pumping equipment. The firm has dealers throughout the world.
