Has Johnson Pump figured out how to reduce Sea Pump corrosion?

In Johnson Pump’s 30+ year history, they have grown from being a small company based in Örebro into one of the most predominant suppliers on the international pump market. Johnson Pump has strengthened its position in industrial and process pumps through-out Europe and other parts of the world.

Johnson pump sea pumps

Sea water pumps are often exposed to oils and other chemicals that, over time, can break down impeller materials. Johnson Pump understands this and offers impellers that use alternative materials such as Nitrile and an ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber compound called MC97. Nitrile and MC97 remain stable in the presence of petroleum products and higher temp waters resulting in an impeller that will not swell or deteriorate.  These properties make Johnson impellers ideal for sea water pumps and fuel transfer pumps.  Johnson Pump offers water pump impellers in many common sizes and are built tough to meet the demands of commercial and recreational boaters.

Johnson Pump is one of the leading original equipment pump suppliers to the largest manufacturers world-wide of inboard engines. Engine cooling pumps are available in several different styles and sizes to satisfy different cooling system needs. Flanged pumps which mount directly to the engine and crank shaft pulley mounted pumps are available for a wide variety of engines.

Paul Wohlrab Set to Retire

Paul Wohlrab, Outside Sales Manager at Lewis Marine Supply (who recently acquired Jerry’s Marine Service) has announced his retirement on April 10, 2020.

Paul has more than 45 years in the boating industry. In the last decade he lead the outside sales team at Lewis Marine Supply and the sales team at Jerry’s Marine Service, based in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Prior to that, he held management positions at Reverso Pumps, Tides Marine, and Mase Generators North America.  Working for Bennett Trim Tabs and Pompanette rounded out the career that began in the 70’s as the sales manager for Gondolier Magazine, a regional boating publication.

Paul has been active for the past several years on the recruitment committee of the MIASF. “Some of the best times, and the most fun people in any industry, can be found in the Marine Industry”, he states.

“The combination of Jerry’s Marine and Lewis Marine offer endless possibilities to expand and serve the marine industry marketplace.  These opportunities are best implemented by a younger, progressive crew, and the current team will make this happen.  I’ll be most content to applaud from the sidelines.”

Paul plans to enjoy more time with him family, do some fishing and enjoy leisure time in the industry he loves. He wants to thank all that have aided in his success.

Lewis Marine Supply Acquires Jerry’s Marine Service

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida-based Lewis Marine Supply is excited to announce the acquisition of Jerry’s Marine Service. Jerry’s Marine Service is a family owned business founded in 1971, selling marine parts, engines and motor parts, and is an authorized dealer for Suzuki and Honda. Jerry’s Marine has locations in Fort Lauderdale, FL and Charleston, SC.

Company President, Chelsea Beyer, “Adding the Jerry’s Marine Service business to the Lewis Marine Supply team is a foundational business opportunity. Fort Lauderdale is our home base, and we will be even stronger in our home market. The addition of Charleston is a first step in an expanded geographic reach to better service customers. The Jerry’s product lines are complimentary to Lewis’, greatly enhancing our offering and allowing one-stop shopping for our customers.”

Jerry’s Marine owner Jon Lewis will be staying on to lead the sales team. He adds, “This acquistion gives us a great opportunity to offer more to our customers, but equally important is the cultural fit that our companies have. We are two traditionally family run businesses who have always valued personal service and strong product knowledge. We are excited to join forces and grow as an integrated team moving forward.”

The business will operate as Lewis Marine Supply, while keeping the Jerry’s Marine Service name for motors and engine related business. Jerry’s Marine location in Fort Lauderdale will relocate into the main Lewis Marine facility located at 220 SW 32nd Street in Fort Lauderdale in the next few months. Jerry’s Marine location at 3601 Meeting Street Rd in Charleston will be rebranded to Lewis Marine Supply and continue to operate from that location.
