Foundation of the company Franz Eisele und Söhne Pumpenfabrik und Eisengießerei at the location Laiz in Sigmaringen, Germany. Franz Eisele was a trained carriage mechanic and had a passionate relationship with agriculture.. The company is still producing in Laiz today. The main office of the company is also here.
Eisele purchased a license for the production of liquid manure pumps and liquid manure cocks, his many skills - also as designer - lead to the improvement of the poorly equipped machines for the agricultural sector and other companies of that time. Eisele accompanied the introduction of the first electric motors and successfully implemented this into the range of products then, including repairs. In 1906, this inventive talent was confirmed with the first German Empire patent (Reichpatent). Further patents were to follow.
Expansion of the company and affiliation of a grey cast iron foundry. Business was running well, Eisele also had talent in presenting his achievements at trade fairs. Therefore, he purchased a new piece of land in 1912. A large factory hall was built and the company grew up until the start of the war.
With the premature death of Franz Eisele (62 years old), Josef and Carl Eisele and their brother in law Adolf Zeller took over the management of the company. They were handed over a flourishing factors with 20,000 m², of which about 4,400 m² were covered by a roof, as well as more that 60 employees. And an optimistic view in the future.
A significant reduction of the volume of production was caused by the chaos of war. However, the company that was rich in tradition in the mean time managed to keep to its range of products.
Resumption of the production of pumps and the first mobile centrifugal pump. The Eisele pumps had already turned to a fixed term for quality and reliability. The right know-how was proven at many locations, even when used under hard conditions. The company torn by the war could build on this expertise and make a new start in the difficult post-war times. The first mobile pumps were naturally a big help.
Construction of a dry self priming centrifugal pump.
Construction of the first timber slurry silos, later these were made of plastic-coated corrugated steel. With the silo construction, the company also expanded it services. One was able to offer the farmers an "All-round Carefree Package" that was gladly used.
Start of the tank wagon production. With the construction of tank wagons, the company Franz Eisele u. Söhne took another step towards expanding their production and expertise. Within a short time, one could not imagine the landscapes of Europe without these distinctive high-quality vehicles. Their capacity of slurry was already up to 10,000 litres.
Construction of the designer centrifugal pumps with tearing device (up to 22 kW), standing vertical pumps with electric motor, PTO-drive or a combination of both. Moreover, with the mobile submersible pump DT, the first submersible pump with forced cooling was introduced. Another great success for the company from Sigmaringen.
In 1980, his son Bernd Eisele initially took over the management of the company. His brother Michael Eisele then joined the management of the company five years later.
Another Eisele innovation: submersible mixers, submersible pumps and liquid manure aerators were driven by submersible pumps produced in-house. They made the company almost immortal with these products! The quality, reliability and long service life of the motors were almost proverbial. And all of them, Made in Germany!
After the companies own foundry was closed, the first rotary lube pump was designed at Eisele after more mature development work. The high-performance pumps developed especially for the agricultural and industrial sectors are self-priming and emphasises the reputation of the company being the leader in quality and technical standards. A real Eisele pump!
The grandchild of the company founder, Franz Eisele pases away in Sigmaringen. The management was already taken over befor by the sons.
Continuous expansion of the production using using the most modern production standards as well as technical innovations. End of the tank wagon construction due to the concentration of a more compact range of products in 2015. In the mean time, Eisele pumps and mixers are well known throughout the world and are in permanent use!
