The Progress Group Inc., formally known as Progress Pump & Machine & Progress Pump & Turbine Services was founded in 1973 in Whiting, Indiana by Aleksandar Desancic and moved to Schererville, Indiana in 1979, where we reside today.
The new name change reflects our desire to continually add new services to better serve our customers, we have added mobile equipment service and industrial rentals to our list in 2017. In the spring 2016 we added a 35,000 square foot extension to our plant with new support equipment to accommodate our customer’s needs, bringing our main building to 12,000 square feet.
We have also added a 75 ton crane with a 20 ton auxiliary hoist to our collection of 20 ton cranes. The 75 ton crane with 20 ton aux has full access to all 35,000 square feet of our new addition. The new addition is 70 foot tall and has 44 feet of head space below the crane rails, this allows us to take on the largest of projects.
While industrial pumps and rotating equipment has been our lifeblood, we have continued to grow our turbine repair business, by adding numerous turbine specialists to our family, bringing years of experience and project planning to our facility. We offer turnkey packages, as well as tear down and inspect only.
