A new division of SIGMA New Jersey-based SIGMA has announced the acquisition of the Unique Fittings and Flanges Division of Unique Industrial Products of Houston, TX. For more than 30 years SIGMA has been one of North America’s largest and most successful manufacturers of pipe, fittings and appurtenances servicing the Waterworks wholesale market in the U.S. The company is now taking its proven customer service and supply chain management skills into new markets with this recent acquisition. The new SIGMA division is called SIGMA Piping Products (SPP) and the company has aggressive plans to grow its presence in the Plumbing, Industrial and Fire Protection markets. National Sales Manager for SPP Matt Minamyer, explains, “We know it’s a tough time to grow a new business, but our combination of good pricing, high quality, and friendly customer service representatives has allowed us to start strong, meet our business goals and continue to expand. Unique brought us a strong base from which to start in both the Fire Protection and OEM markets. We've been able to grow that base as well as expand into other vertical markets such as Industrial, Oil Well and Commercial Plumbing, for example.” SPP’s business model is to maintain local inventory so that our customers can get their orders quickly from one of SIGMA's five warehouses located throughout the country. Customers in all related markets can purchase from SIGMA products such as malleable iron, cast iron or ductile iron threaded fittings, steel pipe nipples, steel flanges, CI flanged fittings, threaded and grooved welded outlets, wall and post indicators, and many different kinds of fire valves. "One of SIGMA’s major goals is to expand our product line," adds Minamyer. To this end, SPP has many new products scheduled for release in the near and long term, including at least two new domestic products. It's exciting times here at SIGMA. Look out for new announcements in the near future. Www.sigmaco.com
