GR rings the bell at the NYSE
August 8, 2011
Gorman-Rupp's largest individual shareholders were on-hand to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange
just a little over a week ago
. The company's Chairman of the Board is Jim Gorman, whose father, JC, founded the company in 1933
. Jim was elected to the board of directors of the company in 1946
, and current President and CEO Jeff Gorman was elected to the board in 1989. The company became publicly-traded in 1968
, but the Gorman family retains a very significant share of ownership in the company.
We have represented Gorman-Rupp since 1984 -- or nearly two-thirds of the time it has been a publicly-traded company.
