our roots

Valley Supply Co-Op, Water Division, opened for business during the Great Depression in 1938. The founders saw a need for dependable water for the farmers, and drinking water for families. Determination and true grit spurred The Valley Co-Op water division, into setting a foundation for today’s business structure.  

In 1979, The Valley Co-Op acquired new ownership and a took on a new name. Valley Pump was established with Jim Alcorn as President. Jim’s vison and steadfast dedication to quality over quantity produced a standard that can’t be matched and cultivated a household name.

In 2016, a new chapter was opened for the Valley Pump Inc. Joe Alcorn succeeded his Father and took over the reins. Joe has an invested stake in Valley Pump and he has the tenacity to take Valley Pump and propel forward while maintaining as a pillar in the industry.

Joe Alcorn grew up in this industry. He can remember carrying pipe wrenches as a young boy for his Father out in the field. He took so much pride in belonging to something that was greater than himself. He was always eager to get mud on his hands, sunshine on his face and gain the satisfaction of getting water to the customers. Every day he spent in the field next to his Grandfather and Father was an adventure and educational. He received hands on education from the men who laid the groundwork for this business.  Today, Joe and the Valley Pump Inc. team cares for the company that his family built.

It started as a family business and continues as family business. The Alcorn Family is honored to serve you and proud to treat you as our extended family.
