Upstate Manufacturer Named Finalist for Best Plants CompetitionOctober 1, 2014
We would like to congratulate Upstate-based T&S Brass and Bronze Works, Inc., a leading manufacturer of faucets, fittings and specialty products for the foodservice, industrial, commercial plumbing and laboratory markets, on being named a finalist in IndustryWeek’s 2014 Best Plants competition. Presented annually, IW’s Best Plants Competition recognizes manufacturers that excel in select performance metrics, their commitment to improve and an engaged workforce.
T&S and its team of 200-plus employees manufacture products known for their durability from the company’s headquarters in Greenville County. T&S’ South Carolina manufacturing facility helps to support distribution facilities in California and China and has led to significant growth in Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Canada, Japan, Southeast Asia and South America.
Founded in 1947, T&S was founded by Long Island-based plumbers George Theisen and Carl Spatt. By the 1970s, T&S grew from a pair of plumbers making products in their garage to a serious manufacturer serving the commercial restaurant business that outgrew its facilities in New York. After an extensive search for a location, T&S found a new home in Travelers Rest, S.C. where it has been headquartered since 1978.
The winners of this year’s IndustryWeek Best Plants Competition will be profiled in the January 2015 issue of IndustryWeek and honored at the IndustryWeek Best Plants conference, held May 4-6 in Charlotte, N.C.
