When Franklin Electric was founded in 1944 by Ed Schaefer and T.W. (Wayne) Kehoe, it was just a small motor manufacturing company. Since then, Franklin Electric has grown into a leading global provider of systems and components for moving water and fuel.
For the first few years of business, Franklin Electric specialized in manufacturing small electric generators. In 1950, Franklin Electric released it’s breakthrough product, a fully submersible pump motor that was also quieter, easier to instal, and more powerful which made housing more viable in parts of the country with low water tables. During this time, a surge in the housing market had created a huge demand for fully submersible electrical pump motors. Soon, Franklin Electric had grown from a niche electric motor business into a multi-million dollar company.
