About Us

History of David Zuidema Inc

Since the beginning of David Zuidema Inc. in 1919, the Zuidema septic and cesspool pumping company has been family owned and operated, totaling in four generations of highly qualified, experienced personnel.

During the depression years, a horse-drawn wagon, outfitted with a wine barrel was the “pumper truck”, which carried the company right through WWII. At that time, David Zuidema Inc. served the North Western New Jersey, Midland Park, Rockland, and Bergen County areas.

Through the 50s, 60s, and 70s, Korean War veteran Dave Zuidema Jr. carried the company. Modernized equipment came into use, motor pumps were invented, and the company expanded their coverage into Northern New Jersey.

We Have Been in Business for Over a Century!

Into the 80s, David Zuidema III took over, expanding the company even further to cover the Commercial & Restaurant industry, and adding more trucks and service vehicles to the line-up. Currently, David Zuidema’s son David Zuidema III oversees the company. Now with a fleet of over 60 vehicles, David Zuidema Inc. is state licensed in New Jersey, New York State, and the five boroughs, providing residential, commercial, restaurant, and industrial service for non-hazardous material.
