``Since 1961``

The James M. Cox Company is a true sole proprietors success story.  The founder, James M. Cox started a valve distributorship in the fall of 1961 from the basement of his house, with no working capital.  Today, it is a complete pipe, valve, and fitting warehouse, with multiple specialty supply divisions within. “Since 1961”, we have been supplying piping materials and tailoring our services to fulfill the specific needs and expectations of the commercial, industrial, municipal and contractor markets.

James M. Cox Co. builds on past for even better future

Now with members of their third generation involved in the business, the Cox family took great pride in marking the 50th anniversary of the James M. Cox Company this year. It was especially fulfilling that founder James Cox, who is now 86, was able to attend the celebration.

“My father started this company in August 1961,” said president Mike Cox Sr., and this celebration was the pinnacle of the years we’ve been in business. For my father, myself and my siblings, it has been very gratifying to see three members — so far — of the third generation join the business. It was always a goal of ours for the business to continue in our family.”
