Pumping Process By Maura Keller

McFinn Technologies; established by John McGinn and LeRoy Finnigan, manufactures innovative, patented and trademarked gentle handling, low shear pumping technology for the dairy industry. McFinn Technologies received its first U.S. patent for its leading-edge low shear centrifugal pump, the Bowpeller, in 2003 and the rest is just hard work and dedication.
