Pacific Pipe & Pump Owner/President Nils Dragoy started in the fishing Industry hands-on with his family being involved in the fishing industry dating back to the 1970’s back in Norway. After his family migrated to the U.S., settling in the Pacific Northwest, Nils was employed as a deck hand on fishing fleets similar to what we know today as vessels seen on television shows such as Discovery Network’s “Deadliest Catch”. After 15 years, Nils decided to make better use of his talents. He developed methods for improving maintenance and reliability for fishing vessels that are out on the waters during long periods of time on fishing excursions, thus establishing Pacific Pipe & Pump in 1994.
