Founded in 1947, T&S originally developed foodservice plumbing equipment, including the market's first pre-rinse unit, which became the industry standard. Then, in 1950, the company introduced its full line of foodservice plumbing products and established T&S as the premiere manufacturer in the industry. By 1953, T&S introduced the foot pedal valve, yet another product that became the industry standard.
Over the next four decades, the company entered new markets within the plumbing industry. In 1956, T&S made its debut in the laboratory market with its Lab-Flo line of laboratory service fittings. Four years later, the company expanded into non-residential markets with industrial-grade faucets for institutional applications, and penetration of the commercial plumbing market began.
A hallmark to the continued success of T&S Brass is the Voice of the Customer. And, recognizing the unique needs of foodservice manufacturers, T&S created another division called equip. Launched in spring 2000, equip provides customers with the choices they deserve, an extensive line of quality, certified foodservice accessories.
The T&S expansion has not been limited to the borders of the United States. During the last 20 years, the company has significantly increased its overseas exports. Today, representatives sell T&S products in Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Canada, Japan, southeast Asia and South America.
To support its growing global distribution system, T&S established facilities on several continents. Currently, more than 200 employees manufacture products and service customers from company headquarters in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. A second U.S. distribution facility is located in Simi Valley, California. Overseas offices and distribution centers are located in Europe and Australia.
Today, T&S manufactures and sells faucets, fittings and specialty products and accessories for foodservice, industrial, commercial plumbing and laboratory markets. Its products have become the standard for the majority of U.S. hospitals, schools, restaurants, prisons and public facilities.
Leading the way in innovation, quality manufacturing, sales and customer service, T&S will remain dedicated to the same commitment of excellence which established its reputation as the Single Source Solution for every plumbing application that customers have learned to trust.
