Gorman Rupp (AMEXGRC) is a pump manufacturer in Mansfield, Ohio.[1] It manufacturers pumps for municipal, water, wastewater, sewage, industrial, construction, petroleum, fire and OEM markets. The company is traded on the American Stock Exchange[citation needed]. Its current CEO is Jeff Gorman.



Gorman Rupp was founded in 1933 by two unemployed engineers, J.C. Gorman and Herb Rupp. They introduced self-priming, centrifugal pumps to the market; skeptical competitors trying to discredit their design instead brought attention to the young company. The company has since grown to be one of the world's largest pump manufacturers: in 2007 it had sales of $305,600,000.[2]


Gorman-Rupp's line of pump products include self-priming centrifugal pumps, standard centrifugal pumps, submersible pumps, trash pumps, priming assisted pumps, rotary gear pumps and air-driven diaphragm pumps.[2]
