Our Metropolitan Industries Family
Our Family of Brands and Collective Capabilities
Our parent company, Metropolitan Industries, began its journey in 1957 as a general manufacturer’s representative in the Chicago metropolitan area. After narrowing its focus by specializing in pumps and related accessory equipment backed by a thorough technical and market knowledge, the company experienced rapid growth and became a leading supplier throughout the Midwest.
Through the years, Metropolitan continued to strengthen the company by adding a full service repair shop, a control panel manufacturing division, in-house fabrication and an increased investment towards engineering, which expanded their capabilities in a wide variety of areas. Metropolitan seized the opportunity and began to manufacture complete packaged pumping systems fully integrated with their own manufactured control and monitoring systems. Taking the complete pumping system one step further was Metropolitan’s ability to fully customize each system so that it can fully meet the unique specifications of individual application requirements.
Metropolitan’s complete pumping and control systems provides project partners and end users with a sole source project supplier and integrator, allowing for a streamlined and well-coordinated process from conceptualization through installation. With a footprint spanning throughout North America, Metropolitan’s vast project portfolio encompasses flow distribution, pressure control, treatment, collection, temperature control, hydronics and reuse.
The family owned Metropolitan is headquartered in Romeoville, IL, just down the street from Emecole Metro. Both facilities are just 35 miles southwest of Chicago. In addition to its Emmons Metro facility in Albany, NY, the family owned Metropolitan collectively employs over 150 people.

The success of our company has been supplemented by the creation of dedicated divisions and notable acquisitions, all of which today help comprise the modern-day Metropolitan Industries family.
Ion Technologies is the residential pumps division of Metropolitan Industries. The Ion Technologies lines of products includes high capacity sump pumps, battery backup systems and sophisticated control integration options. Available via wholesale supply houses and to contractors via Emecole Metro, the Ion Technologies line is trusted by residential contractors and homeowners to protect basements from the threat of flooding.
With the initiative to extend average pump life and reduce common pump failures due to faulty float switches, Ion Technologies developed the state-of-the-art Ion Digital Level Control Switch. Equipped with a water level sensor that electronically turns pumps on and off, the Ion Digital Level Control Switch monitors water levels and removes up to 6 inches of water per cycle. This reduces frequent pump cycles, which places less stress on pump hardware to result in prolonged pump life. The Ion Digital Level Control Switch is integrated with all Ion Technologies sump pumps and AC-powered backup systems.

MetroCloud is a Cloud SCADA monitoring system by Metropolitan Industries that is integrated with a variety of pumping sites.

Its built-in functionality is very similar to that of a locally hosted SCADA platform, which minimizes the learning curve among end users.
