About Coker Pump & Equipment Company - Servicing California & Nevada
Coker Pump & Equipment Company has been a provider of pumps and related components since 1956. The company founder, Mr. Jack H. Coker, decided to branch out from his job as a machinist and he and his wife began to work for themselves. During these humble beginnings they operated out of a one room shop, and as the demand continued to grow, their son Craig joined the family business. Thirty years later upon building a recognizable name in the industry, they grew and moved to 1055 3rd St Oakland, where they still have their current operation in addition to their second location in the Central Valley.
In 2001 Mr. Jack Coker passed away leaving the legacy of the company and its successful operation to his son Craig and grandson Erik, both of whom lead and manage each of the company’s two locations today. With Craig running the Central Valley location and Erik running the Oakland location the company has thrived. Coker pump is a member of the California League of Food Processors and heavily relied upon to provide their products to not only the food processing industry, but to many others as well.
The company’s ten salesmen have a combined experience in pump engineering of 140 years. This coupled with an inventory of a net cost of $3,200,000, is unmatched by competitors. Coker can also provide to its customers the support of a full service shop facility that is well equipped and staffed with knowledgeable technicians.
Craig and Erik Coker attribute their family business’s continued success to the fact that they have never lost sight of what matters most to them and that is great customer service! In the face of changing business dynamics they believe that staying timeless in their business philosophies is essential. They have adapted to business in today’s competitive environment without sacrificing the humanness they strive to provide to each customer that calls on Coker Pump and Equipment. The future of this company if firmly rooted in a staff that has years of experience in the pump industry and a tremendous amount of dedication to the longevity of Coker Pump and Equipment.
