Our Company


Service, Expertise and Quality really does say it all.

Originally established in the 70’s as Russell Pool Pumps, the company was the original importer of Grundfos Pumps into New Zealand with the first shipment arriving in Rotorua in 1979. With the head office in Rotorua, where it remains, the business grew to include a branch in Auckland.

In 1996 the business was purchased by Dave Swann & Andy Monroe and the name was changed to Hi Flo Pumps and Irrigation Ltd. In the succeeding years the business has grown through the vision of the two proprietors, and some strategic acquisitions have enhanced the business further.

2000 Auckland Pumps Services

Auckland Pump Services was acquired to establish our Auckland service operation. Since 2000 the Auckland service operation has grown from 1 person to a team of 7, with an ever expanding customer base

2005 Fern Engineering

Fern Engineering was a long established pump business in New Zealand, with a strong reputation for design and fabrication of pumps and pump systems for industrial applications.

These acquisitions provided industrial pump system design, fabrication and sales skills to the business to complement the strongest pump service operations in Auckland and Rotorua.
We now offer our customers a full capability from system design to installation and system operation and maintenance.

Like all successful companies, people are the key. We are proud of the team we have, their skills, expertise and dedication they bring to work every day. We also ensure they maintain their knowledge by providing ongoing training.


We are committed to providing a safe working environment for our staff and ensuring they are protected from hazards whether it is in our workshop or on your site.
Our safety consultant is a UK based Kiwi analyst with degrees in ergonomics and the NEBOSH diploma in IOSH.
