The Experts in Abrasive Slurries

Founded in 1994 by CEO and owner David Pratt, Hunter Equipment Company is an authority on the Bayer Alumina process & abrasive slurries – from the defining and designing through the installation and maintenance of slurry-handling systems. We have the unique ability to incorporate world-renowned brands of slurry-handling equipment into cost-efficient packages that deliver long service life and low maintenance costs.

Guts & Goals – the Hunter Story

Hunter Equipment is the result of a goal David Pratt set in 1981. Twenty-three and tired of living from paycheck to paycheck, he told himself he would start his own company by the time he reached 35.

When his 34th birthday rolled around, David was working for a distributor in Alabama with no prospects of realizing his dream. A phone call would change all that – GIW Industries, a slurry pump manufacturer in Georgia, was looking for a regional rep to take over its product lines.

David jumped at the opportunity. Even when his former employer fired him after getting wind of his aspirations, he didn’t falter. With a viable business plan and prospective suppliers lined up, he beat out an established Baton Rouge firm to take over GIW’s fine product line.

The letter from GIW’s national sales manager welcoming Hunter Equipment as the new representative for Louisiana, Mississippi and Jamaica is framed and displayed on a wall in the company’s corporate office. The letter is dated April 15, 1994 – David’s 35th birthday.

So when we say our goal is to deliver customized slurry equipment solutions, you’ll understand we don’t back down from goals easily. At Hunter, we measure our credibility in previous transactions, exceeding client expectations for nearly two decades and still going strong. Today the company stands for the same principles David used to build it. With dedicated customer service and unmatched slurry expertise, we hope to serve our clients in the Gulf Coast, Jamaica and worldwide for the next twenty years and more.

Hunter gets it done. Call us to see why we’re the experts in abrasive slurries.
