About Us

John Best with butter pump from BestPump


Our Founder John Best worked in pumps his whole career. In 2000, towards the end of his working life (or so he thought), John was made redundant from his Waukesha pumps sales role. It was then that he decided to start a pump distribution company – he named it BestPump.

With John’s industry-renowned reputation for first-class pump knowledge, his passion for top-notch customer service and an extensive portfolio of clients in the food, beverage & pharmaceutical manufacturing sectors, BestPump hit the ground running and grew.

BestPump Ltd is now operated by John’s son & daughter (under his watchful eye) but adhering very much to those early principles – best products – best solutions – best customer service – BestPump.

BestPump started life in the year 2000 as a distributor for a select handful of pump manufacturers and we’ve certainly grown since those early years.

The Best team

The BestPump Story


BestPump was founded in April 2000 by Mr John Best following a lifelong career in pumps.


In April 2004, the company changed from Sole Proprietor status to become a Limited company following a very successful startup period. This year also marked the successful sale and installation of BestPump’s first butter block pump & screw feeder system.


Company growth continued and after out-growing the original home-office in Airdrie then several other offices in Coatbridge & Cumbernauld over the years, BestPump put down roots in Dundyvan Industrial Estate in Coatbridge.


After outgrowing a couple of industrial units in Dundyvan Industrial Estate, BestPump relocated (again). This time, we moved literally across the road into a brand new modern industrial unit in the newly constructed Dundyvan Enterprise Park, Coatbridge. With office space, hygienic pump workshop and mezzanine floor for stock storage, our ability to serve our clients was stronger than ever.


In April 2017, we broadened our product & service offerings to include stainless-steel fabrication, welding and pipework by opening a stainless-steel fabrication workshop. This confirmed our position as a single-source supplier for hygienic pumps and related bespoke stainless-steel equipment.


Despite the Coronavirus pandemic this year, in October 2020, we relocated our metal fabrication workshop across the estate and into two vacant units adjacent to BestPump HQ. After knocking down a wall and a new doorway to link the units, we now occupy units L, M & N at Dundyvan Enterprise Park, Coatbridge.
