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 seven plumbing locations in Minnesota (Duluth, Mankato, St. Cloud, St. Louis Park, St. Paul), North Dakota (Bismarck), and Colorado (Park Supply of Colorado), with SPS Kitchen and Bath Showrooms featured at our St. Louis Park, Mankato, St. Cloud, and Bismarck locations. Each showroom features the latest styles and designs in kitchen and bath fixtures and are utilized by a variety of customers including builders, contractors, plumbers, homeowners, and more. 

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, Wichita, Kansas, and Davenport and Johnston, Iowa.

Our SPS Metals division, previously known as Interstate Manufacturing and Supply, 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.
