G.A. Murdock, Inc. was founded in 1987. Its goal is to provide high quality Fluid Valves, Fittings, and other Point of Use (POU) / Point of Entry (POE) accessories for the Water Treatment Industry. G.A. Murdock, Inc. also services the Office Coffee Service, Appliance, Dialysis, Photo Processing, Beverage, and many other industries.
Gene and Brian Appelwick formed G.A. Murdock, Inc. as a solution to the problems they experienced in the retail water conditioning business. Using their retail dealership experiences and customer input, the company continually produces new products. They strive to provide innovative, high quality solutions to solve common problems.
G.A. Murdock, Inc.'s beginning came with the patent of the Mur-lok® RO Pal®. The RO Pal® was designed to replace Piercing/Saddle Valves, which have been made illegal in most plumbing codes. In the installation of Drinking Water System and other POU equipment piercing/saddle valves commonly leak. The RO Pal® resolves this problem by using plastic compression technology while incorporating a ball valve for a positive water shutoff.
In a continual effort to improve quality G.A. Murdock, Inc. began manufacturing ball valves in 1994. Using the finest materials available, along with stringent quality control standards, G.A. Murdock, Inc. produces the industry's most reliable ball valves. The company now manufactures well over one hundred PVC Ball Valve versions. In addition to ball valves, the company manufactures many other plastic products aiding in the installation of POU/POE.
