History of AGI Industries
AGI Industries, is an industrial fluid handling products distributor, systems packager and specialty pump manufacturer founded in 1963 when founder,
Albert L. George, decided to design and build a new line of hydraulic tongs for the oil and gas industry. While the project never developed,
Albert found the local marketplace eager for fluid power products and technical expertise in the application of those products.
In 1968 the company name changed from George Equipment & Engineering to Al George Incorporated. The company then expanded to include pump distribution,
packaged pump systems and the manufacturing of high pressure triplex pumps and related components. The company formally became AGI Industries
Today AGI Industries consists of three divisions, AGI Industries, AGI Packaged Pump Systems, and Hydroplex and has expanded to include valve and
valve automation products, flow, level temperature and pressure measurement, vapor and flame control, long term storage and preservation products,
and electrical motors, drives, and controls.
In 2004 the principal shareholders established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) allowing the ownership of the company to flow to the benefit
of the employees and making each employee a stake holder in the growth and success of the company.
