Layne Bowler’s history can be traced back to 1882, when the inventor Mahlon Layne drilled his first well and found himself in need of a pump to deliver the water from the well. He understood that the pump he required would need to be different from all existing pumps of that time.

In 1903, Mahlon Layne and entrepreneur PD Bowler got together and created the Layne & Bowler Company in the Mississippi Basin, where they manufactured vertical turbine pumps for use in cased wells or where the water level was below the practical limits of surface pumps. From these humble beginnings Layne Bowler pumps are now installed in all parts of the world.

Layne Bowler Pump Company Inc. was established in Ankara, Turkey, in 1965, where the innovation and engineering development never stopped, with Layne Bowler continuing to introduce new pump ranges.

Layne Bowler’s premises in Ankara covers 42,000sqm, where its qualified engineers and experienced technicians continue to serve the energy, industrial, municipal, and agricultural markets.
