IFS strengthens commitment to Central Connecticut through new job creation,  tech acquisition, and by tapping new capital resources  

Industrial Flow Solutions (IFS), a leading designer and manufacturer of pumping, controls, and  fluid management solutions for rugged and harsh industrial environments, has completed the  consolidation of its three Connecticut-based facilities under one roof in New Haven.  

The company’s 75-person workforce has fully moved into the new 65,000 square-foot factory at  90 & 104 John W. Murphy Drive. The facility is approximately 50% larger than its previous  operating facilities. Now IFS has more than enough space for operations, production testing,  inventory, engineering and research & development labs, as well as all office personnel to  produce BJM Pumps®, Stancor®, Overwatch™, and Oil Minder® branded products.  

IFS President John Wilson says the new, larger New Haven facility allows “a great deal of room  to continue to expand, without sacrificing the high human touch and market leading lead-times  that customers expect from IFS.”  

“We have already exceeded the $385,000 investment we committed to a year ago when we  partnered with the Department of Economic Development on the acquisition of the New Haven  site,” said Wilson.  

“Since relocating here, we have grown our in-house testing capabilities, built a new flow lab to strengthen our competitive position in the commercial, municipal, and industrial sectors, and  also fully integrated our OverWatch Direct In-Line pumping technology. This solution eliminates  the dangers and difficulties of traditional wet well installations and is a game-changer for our  company and the broader market,” added Wilson.  

IFS is also moving aggressively to increase the available capital resources to fuel even greater  levels of growth, by recently transacting a commercial real estate sale-leaseback with New  Canaan-based Luzern Associates. The arrangement will provide IFS with increased flexibility to  make additional investments in employees, new equipment, and technology, which are aimed at  making IFS even more successful in the months and years to come. 

“We are excited to invest in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in an urban in-fill location and the opportunity to support Industrial Flow Solutions’ growth plans by becoming their real estate partner,” said Salvatore Campofranco, Founder and Managing Member, Luzern Associates LLC. 

“It’s a win-win for everyone. Luzern benefits from a long-term relationship with a high-quality tenant such as IFS, one of New Haven’s respected and growing businesses. In turn, IFS receives working capital to support growth in operations,” he added. 

Industrial Flow Solutions Strengthens Partnership with City of New Haven Since acquiring the New Haven property, IFS has proudly partnered with the City on several fronts to demonstrate the company’s commitment to New Haven and Central Connecticut. 

1. Supported local hiring and contractors through the Commission on Equal Opportunities and New Haven’s Small Contractor Development Program. 

2. Adjusted property fence lines to accommodate and help expand and maintain the Mill River Trail. 

3. Provided employee service hours and other support for the Mill River Trail and expanding public access to trails throughout the city. 

4. Engages with United Way of Greater New Haven to serve families in need through pop up pantries, toy drives, and other initiatives.
