After more than 40 years in the plumbing and piping Industry and the last six years as president and CEO of Kelly Pipe Co, Leonard Gross is retiring as of March 31.

Gross has been a great asset to Kelly and during his tenure has been responsible for the growth of the company from nine locations to the current 15 locations. Kelly employs more 250 people and has its headquarters in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., with branch offices and yards across the United States, Canada, UK and Colombia.
