Corken’s passion for finding solutions to compression and pumping problems stems from its founders, Otto K. (O.K.) and Charlie Corken. In 1924, O.K. Corken and his son, Charlie, opened a distributorship for water and boiler feed pumps in Oklahoma City. In the mid-1940s, they began manufacturing compressors and pumps for the LPG industry. Both men were known for their passion and commitment to developing solutions for complex compression and pumping problems inherent to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and other industrial gases and liquids. In the years to follow, Corken quickly gained market recognition for its quality line of industrial compressors and pumps designed for propane, butane, and anhydrous ammonia.
Today, Corken’s compressors, pumps, and engineered packages are used by a wide range of companies throughout the world, including the Far East, Asia, Africa, Europe, Middle East, and South and North America. Corken serves each of its customers through an extensive network of distributors—each sharing the same commitment to customer service demonstrated by Corken more than 95 years.
