BrassCraft Manufacturing Co., a pioneer in the development of plumbing products, celebrates its 65th anniversary this year. Founded in 1946, the Novi, Mich.-based company has grown to include distribution and manufacturing facilities in Michigan, California, North Carolina and Texas.

The company’s gas connectors, appliance connectors, water connectors and water stops are designed, machined and assembled in the United States, notedJeff Jollay, marketing and product development vice president.

Along with its commitment to the U.S. market, BrassCraft places an emphasis on innovation, quality and superlative customer service. This emphasis has led to an impressive list of industry firsts, from the invention of the modern-day flexible riser to the development of the one-piece water stop. Recent products include PushConnect water stops for quick, secure connections, and new solutions for tankless water heater installations.

Today, the company provides a complete range of plumbing supplies to professionals in the new construction and repair/remodel markets. BrassCraft thanks the plumbing community for its success over the last 65 years.
