J. Hamilton Wright has been in the pump business since 1956. He founded J.H. Wright & Associates in 1961 to serve the growing needs of Mobile, Alabama and its surrounding areas. Ham started with three product lines: Goulds, Gorman Rupp, and Roper. Those lines, along with initiative, determination and a strong commitment to customer service, resulted in a continually growing company, now representing over 50 product lines in both the industrial and municipal markets.
Ham graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and is a Registered Professional Engineer in Alabama and Georgia. He regularly publishes his own newsletter, called Tech Topics, featuring practical information on pumps and related equipment. His trademark straight-to-the point, matter-of-fact style, makes even highly technical concepts easy to understand and apply.
Although he is officially “retired”, Ham continues to stay involved in the business (now run by his son, Mark) and stays current in industry developments. Now in his 80s, he remains a licensed pilot and recently received the Master Pilot award from The FAA for 50 years of safe flying. So, if you’re looking for Ham Wright, try the office - if he’s not there, look for him in the skies!
