About Unitra Inc.

Unitra, Inc. was founded in 1970 by Nami K. Sukun in New York City to export light industrial equipment. The company experienced tremendous success in selling 4" and 6" submersible pumps and motors. In 1971, Nami K. Sukun left the partnership to establish his own manufacturing company which within a short period of time became extremely successful in the manufacture and marketing of self-priming engine driven contractor pumps as well as end suction pumps throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

In 1981, Unitra, Inc., formerly known as Equiptex Corporation, produced the first 100% die cast aluminum engine driven self priming pump in the world. At
that time we were the dominant supplier of this type of product in the global marketplace. During the 1980's we collaborated with affiliates in Italy to create top of the line tooling and successfully sold several thousand pumps annually to major manufacturers in the United States. In 1989, Unitra, Inc. purchased the tooling and patterns for the 4" and 6" submersible pump line from Peabody Barnes and relocated to its present facility in Stafford, Texas where the company remains family owned and operated today.
Over the years, Unitra's reputation for quality, design, high performance, competitive prices and timely delivery has allowed us to maintain a solid foundation of clients in our export markets and now a growing number of customers in the United States. Unitra manufactures some of the highest quality, most time tested pump designs in the water systems industry. We manufacture many of our products in-house using some of the most advanced machining systems available.

Over the years we have earned the privilege as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to serve a number of manufacturers around the world. We also manufacture our own plastic components and supply similar products to other OEM's in our industry.
