Our founder, Charles Austen, is widely believed to have invented the first ever diaphragm pump using the leather from left-over army boots following the first world war. Charles later went on to found the company which in the 1940s, became the first manufacturer to put pumps in the laboratory, where the equiment was used to create vaccines for diseases such as Diphtheria, Smallpox and Polio.
