A History Of Growth...
Everett J. Prescott, Inc. was founded in 1955 in Gardiner, Maine. As the first waterworks distributor north of Massachusetts, we offered water-main tapping and installation, and underground boring.
The 1960's proved to be a decade of development, improvement and expansion for EJP. We introduced the first factory-direct trucking business for cast iron pipe in New England and expanded our fleet of trucks and our product line.
The 1970's brought tremendous growth, EJP's first two branches--in Concord, New Hampshire, and Montpelier, Vermont--were opened. In 1978, EJP started another business, Quality Water Products (QWP) in South Barre, Massachusetts.
Growth continued throughout the 1980's, with the opening of six new branches and the creation of two companies, PEP Transportation and Meter Backflow Services (MBS). In addition to locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut, branches were opened in Indiana.
The early 1990's brought further expansion, with additional branches opening in Maine, Indiana, Ohio and Massachusetts. Rhode Island was established in 1994; Ohio added a branch in 1995; New York added two (1997 and 2000) and South Burlington, VT opened in 2002.
In 2001, we purchased Red Hed Supply & Manufacturing. Those three distribution locations have EJP Lincoln, Rhode Island, EJP Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and EJP North Hatfield Massachusetts. Red Hed Manufacturing in Lincoln, Rhode Island is still operating as a Red Hed facility.
In 2005 we added Keene, New Hampshire and in 2006 we added Syracuse, New York and Jeffersonville, Indiana.
As Team EJP continues to grow and expand we pledge to continue providing the industry's finest water, sewer, drain and gas products, backed by our exceptional level of service.
