Gilkes Inc., Pump Refurbishment
Gilkes Inc. is a pump remanufacturing facility based in Kemah, Texas. We have been operating in the Houston area since 1978 to support our products on crew boats in the Gulf of Mexico. Initially just repairing pumps for end users, we are now suppliers to major remanufacturing programs for Cat ReMan®, Cummins ReCon®, EMD UTEX and GE Transportation.
Gilkes is committed to fully supporting its products through their entire life cycle. Our pumps are renowned for surviving many years in the field but seals, bearings & impellers, in particular, can become worn over time and require replacement.
The process of pump remanufacture involves full strip-down of the pump into its constituent parts. From here all bearings, seals, O-rings, gaskets and fasteners are discarded whilst the remaining items are evaluated for reuse. Items suitable for reclamation are degreased, stripped of paint, shot blasted & refurbished ready to be used for pump assembly.
Using brand new seals, bearings, gaskets and fasteners coupled with the diligence that goes into part refurbishment allows Gilkes to offer exactly the same warranty period applied to new pumps built in our UK facility.
Quality lies deep within the Gilkes ethos. All of our efforts are targeted towards achieving total customer satisfaction in terms of quality, cost & delivery.
This is further evidenced with Gilkes Inc. gaining accreditation to ISO 9001 in 2004 as well as the automotive quality standard IATF 16949:2016 in 2019.
We also offer a service exchange program for end-users utilising only genuine Gilkes parts sourced from our factory
in the UK.
We offer a full 12 month warranty on all service exchange pumps.
