The Granite Group, a leading supplier of plumbing, heating, cooling, piping, water systems and energy products in the Northeast, has announced it has finalized the acquisition of United Plumbing Supply (UPS). Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Based in Springfield, Massachusetts, UPS consists of one wholesale branch located at 377 Cottage Street and a decorative plumbing showroom called, “The Bath & Kitchen Gallery,” located at 1060 Memorial Avenue in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Effective April 1, 2022, both locations began operating under The Granite Group umbrella.
Over the last 5 years, The Granite Group has invested heavily in its technology, e-commerce capabilities and the expansion of its product offering. During this time, there has also been a major focus on growing the company’s footprint, and this latest addition in Springfield marks a perfect fit on many levels.
“We have an aggressive growth plan that involves taking The Granite Group to new markets that we know will benefit from our industry-best combination of great people, great products, and great service," said Chris Ploss, president of The Granite Group. "With the UPS acquisition, we will now have a major presence in the Springfield market which will serve as the perfect gateway for our team to service Western Massachusetts. We could not be more excited to welcome the UPS team into The Granite Group family, roll up our sleeves and get to work in Springfield. We look forward to becoming the region’s go-to source for contractors who want convenient, everyday access to the inventory they need to keep their workdays moving.”
The new Springfield location marks the fourth Granite Group branch opened in Massachusetts over the last year.
