Armstrong donates historic pump photos to Montreal art gallery
Armstrong Fluid Technology recently donated a collection of archival historical photos featuring the Darling Pump Manufacturing Facility to the Darling Foundry Art Center in Montreal, Canada.
The Canadian Art Gallery, a visual art center directed by a non-profit art organization, is located in the former home of the Darling Pump manufacturing facility. The historical photos were part of a special exhibit at the art center that also featured new Armstrong Fluid Technology pumps among other works of art from noted artists.
Darling Pumps was purchased by Armstrong Fluid Technology in 1992, and the pumps are still operating in thousands of buildings around the world.
“Darling Pumps occupy a very special place in our corporate DNA,” said Charles Armstrong, Armstrong’s chairman who presented the photos to Caroline Andrieux, the curator and owner of the gallery.
