Tribal: More Than Just a Custom Brass Fittings Manufacturer

By September 21, 2018 Brass Fittings

For many years, Tribal has been known in the industry as a custom brass fittings manufacturing company with one of the most diverse fleets of equipment in North America. We have produced hundreds of millions of high-quality parts built from US-sourced raw materials like ECO BRASS® without a single claim.

Quality, American-Made Products

But what many people do not know, however, is that Tribal also sells thousands of quality products to plumbing wholesalers and distributors at pricing that consistently beats our competitors.  Products are listed through NSF. Our offerings include:

  • Insert fittings for PEX ASTM 1807
  • Cold expansion fittings ASTM 1960 and ASTM 2080
  • ASTM 1960 PEX Sleeves
  • Compression fittings for radiant heating; ASTM 1974
  • Compression fittings
  • Flare fittings
  • Cooler fittings
  • Pipe fittings and nipples
  • Hose barbs
  • Garden hose fittings
  • Shutoff cocks
  • Industrial valves
  • Bulkhead fittings

Strategic, US locations

With two plants strategically located in Marshall, Michigan and Chesnee, South Carolina, we are able to fulfill orders quickly and on time to anywhere in the country and Canada.

One of the major benefits of working with Tribal is the peace of mind that our prices will remain consistent despite recent tariffs. That is because we source all of our raw materials in the US. This is a significant advantage as tariffs are expected to increase to 25% by the end of the year.  In addition, freight rates from overseas are escalating, not to mention the high costs of transporting product from the West Coast.

Constant innovation

As a company that is constantly innovating, Tribal is set to launch Hubz, a revolutionary new rough plumbing product, by the end of 2018 that will save plumbers and contractors significant costs and installation time. Considering that the labor shortage continues to grow daily, labor-saving products will be crucial to profitiablity.
