In 1953, H.E. Lennon began servicing the lower peninsula of Michigan. In 1982, we opened Midland Valve & Fitting. Then, in 2000, we acquired another branch office, Toledo Valve & Fitting with coverage in eight counties in Northwest Ohio. Finally, in 2002, we acquired Grand Rapids Valve & Fitting. Although we are a single business, we have been operating under three separate company names for nearly fifteen years. The time has come to unify ourselves under one name and leverage our shared talents and resources to serve you, our valued customer.
We are pleased to announce that effective September 30, 2017, H.E. Lennon, Inc., Midland Valve & Fitting Co., and Grand Rapids Valve & Fitting Co. will transition to Swagelok Michigan | Toledo. Our new name represents our partnership with Swagelok and all our valued customers in this region.
