Since the late 1950s, “What could make this better?” was the unwavering motivation Jim Vaughan used to invent the world’s first chopper pump. After countless hours of repairing clogged manure pumps for local dairy farmers, he knew there had to be a solution.
Jim officially introduced the world’s first chopper pump in 1960, and Vaughan Company was born. His brilliant idea met a genuine need that had applications far surpassing the dairy farm. In the decades since our operations expanded significantly. Vaughan Company now has 40 worldwide issued or pending patents, providing pumps and pumping equipment across the globe.
With more than 62 years of experience and four generations of expertise, Vaughan Company remains committed to giving customers around the world outstanding service and the most dependable pumping solutions.
