Business Bio & Background

E. J. “Mort” Morton initially established this business in Coulter, Iowa in 1958 as “Mort’s Pump & Plumbing Co”.  In 1999 “Mort’s Inc.” was established by his son, Seth Morton as the owner.  The family tradition of service and commitment now continues with Seth’s daughter Crystal, fifth generation, to carry on her father’s legacy.


Seth grew up in the family business working with his four older brothers during the summers and continued on after completing high school.  He was exposed to all aspects of the family business and gained a great deal of knowledge through working in the different departments of the company.  Seth became certified in all areas of the business (Pump Installer, Master Plumber, and Installer of Onsite Wastewater Systems) and mastered the skills in the digging department with his known trenching skills.  He was an all-around master of all and is greatly missed by all!  Mort’s Inc. has continued on to assure the family commitment of taking care of it's customer and being "the family that folks trust".  We are still located in the original Mort’s building (North of the CAL School) on the East side of Gull Ave in Latimer, IA. 

It is our belief that the customer is “Our Boss”. It doesn’t matter if a business has been around for 100 years. As we enter our 5th generation of service we will continue to work hard to meet your needs and satisfaction of a job well done. Doing an exceptionally good job brings us joy and satisfaction.  


We are here for our customer’s needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It has always been our commitment to “sell the best and service the rest”.
