Where Art and Function Meet Durability

For one-hundred sixty years, Murdock, Inc. has been the benchmark in both the drinking fountain and water hydrant industries. As early as 1853, while most people were drawing water from common wells, Murdock was manufacturing and installing water delivery systems throughout the country. Our M-1776 Old Style was one of the very first fountain designs. We still manufacture this classic fountain, and many of our products made over a century ago can still be serviced with original parts.

Murdock fountains and hydrants are easily recognized. Our products are nearly everywhere you look—and that’s no coincidence. The Murdock reputation was built on dependability, the main reason why so many architects and city planners, park systems, and others specify only genuine Murdock products in their plans. That’s also the reason why so many people know our name.

Today’s Murdock-Super Secur

In 2005, Murdock joined forces with building manufacturer Super Secur, a division of Acorn’s Family of Companies . Owned by three generations of the Morris family, Super Secur manufactures a complete line of restroom, shower, concession and storage buildings. In addition, they feature a large number of plumbing fixtures that suit the extreme needs of the recreation and industrial markets. These buildings are pre-engineered to exacting standards, allowing quick on-site erection and completion. Both the Murdock and Morris families have a longstanding tradition of building very durable products and we are excited to become the one source for any indoor or outdoor building requirement.
