The Edmund A. Gray Company was founded in 1910 in Los Angeles, by Edmund A. Gray.
After moving west from Chicago just after the turn of the century, to try his hand at farming, he quickly realized his passions and talents were better served elsewhere and headed into (then very small) downtown Los Angeles to search out an opportunity. After a short search he discovered the need for a local source of pipe nipples, and the idea was born. His vision has now lasted for over 100 years. E.A.Gray (as we're now referred to by most) has grown and changed over the years, to become one of the nation's leading manufacturer's of pipe nipples and distributor of nipples and fittings.
Now in it's third and fourth generations of family ownership and operation, we still believe in Edmund's philosophy that "You can't do business from an empty wagon!".
