About Austin Pump & Supply
Austin Pump & Supply Company is a wholesale distributor of water systems products for Central, South, North Central, East and West Texas with locations in Austin, Corpus Christi, Fort Worth, San Angelo, San Antonio and Houston.

In 1944, while owning and operating a hardware store in Austin, C.T. Sterzing bought a water pump to have in stock. After a few years of increasing sales and installations of water pumps from the hardware store, C.T. started a water well contracting firm called Sterzing Drilling. In a very short period of time, Sterzing Drilling grew to five drilling rigs and two service trucks covering an area within a 150 mile radius of Austin.

In 1954, C.T. founded Austin Pump & Supply Company as a wholesale distributor of pumps and well supplies. He operated both Sterzing Drilling and Austin Pump until 1967 when he sold the drilling firm to concentrate his efforts on the wholesale distribution business of Austin Pump & Supply Company.

Our current employees have over 150 years combined service in the water well industry. C.T. instilled in the company and its employees a commitment to provide quality products and superior customer service that continues today after over 60 years in the water well supply business.

In 1985, in response to customer demand, Austin Pump & Supply opened its first branch location in San Angelo, Texas. The San Angelo Branch services customers in West Texas from Del Rio to Abilene and Midland to Alpine. In 1989 the second branch location was opened in Corpus Christi servicing customers in the South Texas-Laredo Valley area. In 1994 Austin Pump & Supply purchased a branch location in Fort Worth in order to service the increasing customer demand in the North Texas area. Our branch location was opened in San Antonio in January of 2003 to better serve our customers in the South Central area of Texas. We opened our newest location in Houston in June 2010 to better reach the East Texas population.

Each branch location is a fully stocked warehouse to service the specific needs of professional water well contractors and pump installers with products from the well to the house. We also carry pumps and other products for commercial, industrial and municipal markets as well as the wastewater and water treatment industries.

Our current operations are overseen by our President - Ryan Arnett.
