Pump Repair Service Company was founded by D. J. “Boots” Archer in May of 1941. The Archer family started their career in the pump business in 1907, with Dave Archer, Sr. (Boots father) when he was hired as a salesman for a local San Francisco pump company.
In 1931, “Boots” was employed by a Bay Area well drilling company and during the next ten years he worked in the well drilling, pump installing and repairing field, until he decided to start his own business in San Francisco which he aptly named Pump Repair Service Company. With his knowledge, experience, good work ethics and friendly personality Boots began to collect a base of satisfied customers. As his business increased, his wife Helen joined the company and managed the office.
In 1955, Boots son David Archer, III started with the company. Over the years, Dave learned the business and eventually in 1980 took over ownership of Pump Repair Service Company when his father Boots retired. In keeping with family tradition Dave’s sons Wayne and Steve Archer started with the company in 1977 and 1988 respectively. The company is still family owned by Dave Archer and his sons Wayne and Steve.
In the past sixty-eight years the company has grown considerable, moved to a larger facility and many changes have taken place, but the original ethics from 1941, knowledge, experience, customer service and pride in our workmanship are still our practice.
