A FUTURE THAT'S BUILT TO LAST
Our earliest pump products earned a well-deserved reputation for durability — they were “built to last.” They still are, and we have applied the same principle to our company, our employees and the communities where we live and work. Our passion is to create a sustainable future, one that’s built to last.
More specifically, Gorman-Rupp companies are committed to advancing the health, safety and wellness of our employees, customers and communities by:
- Making a positive impact on our communities through philanthropy and social engagement;
- Reducing our impact on the environment through resource conservation and waste prevention;
- Treating all employees fairly, with dignity, and without discrimination — and expecting the same of our supply chain partners;
- Providing training and development programs that attract diverse, motivated employees and help them reach their full potential.
