CCOM Group, Inc. Recognizes Anniversaries of Two Subsidiary Companies
CCOM Group, Inc has a lot to celebrate this year, as it recognizes anniversaries for two of its subsidiaries. Universal Supply Group, with locations throughout New Jersey, celebrates 80 years, and RAL Supply Group, based in NY, is 100 years old this year.
In the summer of 1940, Heinz Hildebrandt and William Voorhis founded Universal Engineering Co. The company started by manufacturing oil burners, and in 1945 built its first official shop at 344 Wagaraw, right across the street from CCOM Group’s headquarters today. RAL Supply Group was founded in 1920 as a plumbing supply house and eventually blended business to support HVAC and Plumbing contractors throughout the Hudson Valley.
USG and RAL Supply have been recognized over the years as industry leaders in Plumbing and HVAC distribution. RAL Supply was named Wholesaler of the Year by Supply House Time in 1981 and 1991, the only wholesaler to ever receive this honor twice. USG received the Harold V Goodman award in 2019 and was named Honeywell’s distributor of the year in 2019. USG started working with the commercial controls division in 1978 when Universal Energy Products (UEP) was founded, supporting commercial jobs and fabricating control panels in house in Hawthorne, NJ. USG has received the prestigious Honeywell Diamond Distributor award every year for the last six years and more than a dozen times in total.
CCOM Group Inc acquired Universal Supply Group in 1999 and RAL Supply Group in 2003. CCOM Group includes a third subsidiary, S&A Supply, based in Western MA, founded in 1972. CCOM Group and its subsidiaries distribute HVAC, controls, plumbing and electrical supplies throughout NJ, NY (Hudson Valley, Westchester and Long Island), and Western MA.
