The Gorman-Rupp Company was founded in 1933 during the worst depression in U.S. history. It was during this year that J.C. Gorman and H.E. Rupp, two entrepreneurs from Mansfield, Ohio, pooled $1,500 – along with other considerable talents and fortitude – and began a pump manufacturing business within the walls of a barn on the outskirts of town.

In an industry that lacked a clear market leader, Gorman and Rupp saw an opportunity to excel, establishing their new company upon a mission statement that dictated it would “enter a field of pumping service only when able to provide superior products with better performance.” Today, Gorman-Rupp manufactures over 5,000 models of pumps in a total of over two million square feet of manufacturing and warehousing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and South Africa.

Around the world, Gorman-Rupp is chosen as the superior pumping solution where innovation, reliability and performance are essential. It goes to prove that there is no limit on what dedicated men and women can accomplish when they put their heads – and their hands – together.
