It is with great pleasure that The Gorman-Rupp Company announces its 80th anniversary.

Eighty years ago today, Gorman-Rupp was founded by J.C. Gorman and Herb Rupp, two entrepreneurs who had a chance encounter on the streets of Mansfield, Ohio.  That meeting in March 1933 was the formation of what would eventually become one of the premier pump manufacturing organizations in America – and one that would have worldwide impact.

The Gorman-Rupp Company now occupies millions of square feet in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facilities all over the globe and touts the best distributor network in the industry.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your business.  We would not be where we are today without your dedicated support through the years.

Today, we ask you to join us in celebrating our 80th anniversary.  While we are proud of what we’ve achieved thus far, we are most excited about what the future holds.


Jim Gorman, Chairman of the Board of Directors
Jeff Gorman, President and CEO
