About SPS


SPS Companies, Inc. was established in 1951, and is a wholesale distributor of products and services for Residential and Commercial Plumbing, Mechanical and Industrial Piping, Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Fire protection. We currently have five plumbing locations across Minnesota and North Dakota.

Each of these locations, (with the exception of St. Paul) features a Minnesota Standard or Dakota Standard kitchen and bath showroom. Plumbers, builders, and remodelers can utilize our showrooms to assist homeowners on new home or remodeling projects. Our fire protection locations, which do business as Pipe Fabricators and Howells Fab, offer fire protection products such as pipe, fittings, valves, sprinkler heads, pipe hangers, and fire protection accessories. Pipe Fabricators has locations in Maple Grove, Minnesota and Oak Creek, Wisconsin, while Howells Fab is located in Howells, Nebraska, Johnston, Iowa, and Wichita, Kansas.

Our Interstate Manufacturing and Supply division, has been the one stop supplier to the professional roofing, sheet metal, and plumbing contractors for their specialty copper and architectural metal needs since 1977.

SPS is an Employee Owned Company (ESOP) and has been since 1989. Our employees have a vested interest in SPS, which leads to greater motivation and productivity as they are really “owners” rather than “employees”. This ownership mentality filters down to the customer level, so when a customer calls or stops in at SPS they are being served by people who are self-inclined to deliver the best service possible.
