The Laing family of companies had their beginning in Stuttgart, Germany in the early 1970's with the introduction of unique solar and pump products. Born from extensive research and development activities, Laing now has a large number of registered patents in consumer, commercial, and industrial markets. From its initial success in Europe, Laing entered the U.S. market in 1983 with the formation of Laing Thermotech, Inc., in San Diego, California. Today, Laing’s primary focus is on the manufacturing of fractional horsepower pumps, flow-through heaters, and hydronic heating components. Laing pumps patented, spherical motor design is truly “state-of-the-art” in pump technology and eliminates problematic shafts, seals, and bearings found in conventional mechanically sealed pumps. This helps Laing pumps gain the competitive edge in the market. The Laing Thermotech line includes Autocirc Pumps, Recirc Pumps, Bronze Pumps, Noryl Pumps, Stainless Pumps, DC Pumps and Spa Heaters. Laing Thermotech has a legacy of fine equipment with roots deep in innovation and quality.
