In 1978 Ed McKenna Sr. left his position as Western Region Manager with Worthington Pump Corporation and established McKenna Engineering & Equipment Company, Inc., which has become of the of premier process and engineering equipment companies in California. The Company started with Ed in sales, an inside application engineer, and a shared secretary. McKenna Engineering & Equipment Co., Inc. was set up as a pilot program for Goulds Pumps Inc. as their first distributor.
During the 1980’s roughly 70% of the pump business was in oil refining and production. The oil crash of the mid 80s forced the company to greatly diversify its sales and service efforts with both products and industries, as well as change the way it operated the business.
