History of the Blagdon brand

As a famous brand, what is the history of the brand? Let’s find out together!

Company Origin

Blagdon Pump was founded in the early 1950s by George Blagdon and George Flynn. The company started as a small engineering workshop supplying goods to local coal mines. The company’s first facility was located in the city of Durham in North East England.

Blagdon and Flynn

From his knowledge of the mining industry, Blagdon determined the need for a pump to remove the primary water from the coal face – And that’s why FP1 was born. In 1979 Blagdon produced his first gas-operated diaphragm pump. The first versions were made of aluminum and cast iron for use in mines. These pumps were quite rudimentary compared to the versions used today.
