In 1972, Ray Simon founded the Giant Towel Company. These towels were sold throughout North America to car wash OEM’s and distributors. In the mid-1970’s, Ray became the North American distributor for the German pump manufacturer Speck Kolbenpumpen Fabrik. Speck provided a unique line of pumps and accessories that gained quick acceptance for use by OEM’s and distributors in the pressure washer, car wash and sewer cleaning markets. The high quality German pump products became popular in many industrial applications as well.
To complement the German-made pumps and accessories, and to address some unique requirements for pumps and accessories in the North American market, Giant started to build its own line of accessories, including shut-off guns, accumulators and unloaders. As Giant’s products gained acceptance and the company expanded its product offerings, manufacturing requirements increased and the company acquired new facilities.
In the 1980’s, Giant began to provide pump and motor units for the pressure washer market. At the same time, Giant started to make more axial pumps in Toledo, which required further expansion and another facility. This current facility has allowed Giant to bring in machining centers and production lines to meet market demands. At our current location, Giant is able to manufacture its axial and plunger pumps, pump systems and line of towel products. As we continued to grow our manufacturing base, we also started to pursue existing markets in a more vertical manner. This has meant that we now provide pump systems for a variety of marketplaces. These custom-units help our customers concentrate on what makes them profitable. Currently, Giant provides pumps and pump systems that require more than 1000 HP to drive the pumps.
Giant’s story isn’t just about our pumps, it’s also about our people. One of the key individuals that helped make Giant what it is today was Phil Terisigni. Phil came with unique capabilities and a zest for life and he brought a passion for all he did to Giant and his customers. Phil, Ray and their team helped Giant grow and become a leading company in the pressure washer, car wash and sewer cleaning markets.
Our growth since our founding in 1972 is a tribute to the people that have dedicated countless hours of their lives to our company and our customers. From accounting, to machining, production, sales and engineering, our motivated staff brings years of experience and caring to our workplace. With their support and that of our suppliers and customers, Giant plans to continue to grow its product offerings and expand to meet future market needs for our pump and accessory products.
