(Feb 11, 2015 - Miami, FL) "We couldn't be more excited to enter this agreement with Webasto, a leader in marine heating and cooling solutions," said Michael Caringi, KoolAir Pumps CEO. "Having Webasto as a partner throughout North America will ensure our products gain an even wider reach."

When air conditioning fails, it's usually the result of a pump running dry. That is why KoolAir Pumps were designed with Run Dry Protection, leaving owners cool under any condition. All KoolAir Pumps come with a two-year warranty and an extended limited lifetime parts warranty.

"Manufacturers Edge has been in the fluid handling equipment industry for over 40 years, contributing a lot to the evolution of pumps for a wide range of applications. We know their products will exceed our customers' expectations," said David Wollard, Webasto Thermo & Comfort director of marine division.

KoolAir Pumps' PM500, PM1000 and TPM1000 models are offered in 115V and 230V. The TPM1000 can change between the two voltages with the flip of a switch, while the PM500 is fully submersible with a waterproof epoxy coated, thermally protected motor. Supplied with sealed bearings, the PM1000 also comes with a lube-free motor design. All three models feature hardened carbon bushings.

A distributor for industrial, commercial and marine pump products, Manufacturers Edge, Inc. has been in business since the 1960s. The company entered the manufacturing market with Chugger Pumps®, a magnetically driven pump, used for brewing beer. It is now one of the largest suppliers of pumps within the home brewing industry. Manufacturers Edge also produces Pilotech® and AquaTruck Pumps, which are used within the irrigation industry, both for residential and commercial applications.
