We Exist to Conquer Complexity

FW Murphy Production Controls proudly offers a wide range of instrumentation and control solutions for the Oil & Gas Production and Natural Gas Compression markets. The same traditions of customer focus, innovative ideas and reliable products continue since its inception 84 years ago.

Our commitment is to understand and meet the requirements of our customers and our jobs; provide qualified personnel and sufficient resources so that these requirements can be assured; and maintain an environment which encourages all employees to pursue never-ending improvements in quality and productivity.

Core Values

Our six core values are at the heart of every decision, action and positive result that we achieve. They are the soul of our business.

to catalyze our customers’ success

We fearlessly engage in any effort that will eliminate our customers’ risk and clear a path to their success. We immerse ourselves in our customers’ world, reveal unknowns and deliver integrated solutions.

to win

We are tenacious, tireless and never discouraged in the pursuit of our goals. When we encounter roadblocks, we intensify our focus to break through.

to cultivate excellence

We embrace a sense of healthy paranoia in which quality and performance must be proven and never assumed. We constantly ask “What have we missed?” We hold each other accountable to the highest standards in everything we do.

to change the game

We constantly step back, question assumptions and embrace new perspectives. We ask “Are we solving the right problem?” We look for ways to rapidly leverage our expertise and platforms to generate solutions that separate us from the competition.

to unleash potential

We strive to laugh often and find meaning in our individual and collective efforts. We attract, develop and recognize exceptional people and inspire them to be their best at home, at work and in our communities.

to live in integrity

We treat each other with respect and foster a culture of humility and trust. Honesty, fairness and hard work are central to everything we do.


Top Left: Our first products were built on the Murphy’s kitchen table in Mt. Carmel, Illinois, by Pat and his wife Rosalie. Bottom Left: Testing control panels before being shipped to their final destination, circa 1958. Right: Company founder Frank W. “Pat” Murphy out in the oil fields, circa 1939.

FW Murphy Production Controls was born out of one man’s search for simple, reliable engine protection. While Frank W. “Pat” Murphy was a sales manager for a major equipment distributor in the 1930s, he found that his customers’ main complaint was “burned up” engines. They were equipped with poor quality, non-indicating safety switches which were difficult to test and often inoperative. Pat decided to develop a simpler yet more effective “Safety Switch.”

Pat’s idea was to combine an indicating gage with a switch that would stop the engine when low oil pressure or high coolant temperature existed. It was a simple design, easy to understand – and it worked well. Operators loved the new design because they could see the operating gage, adjust the trip point to their needs and test the switch for operation. His invention was so well accepted, Pat decided to devote 100 percent of his time to manufacturing his “Murphy Safety Switch.” Production began with Pat and his wife, Rosalie, building the instruments on their kitchen table in Mt. Carmel, Illinois.

Over the past 84 years, we have developed hundreds of products that monitor and control compressors, pumps, generators and more. Our control systems monitor pressure, temperature, liquid level, overspeed, time and vibration. We cover it all from simple start/stop operations to sophisticated automation systems. Many of our products and systems carry major international authority approvals.

In 2009, FW Murphy merged with EControls. EControls was established in 1994 and is a leader in the design, engineering and production of complete engine control solutions supplied to OEMs in the engine and vehicle industries.
