BrassCraft Manufacturing Takes Top 2014 Innovation Award


NOVI, MI – BrassCraft Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of plumbing products, was awarded first place in the 2014 Innovation Awards by industry-respected media group, Home Improvement Executive. Home Improvement Executive’s annual Innovation Awards are selected based on interviews with retail buyers and store personnel, research, and product achievements.

BrassCraft Manufacturing won a coveted Gold Innovation Award, with a specific nod to its Safety+PLUS® gas connectors.

“We are honored to have received another Innovation Award for our products,” said Jeffrey Jollay, vice president, Marketing & Product Development, BrassCraft Manufacturing. “It is particularly meaningful for it to be specific to innovation, since that is a continual focus within our company.”

Safety+PLUS® gas connectors combine excess flow technology with the advanced corrosion resistance of the ProCoat® polymer coating to provide a safer connector. The Safety+PLUS® excess flow valve, when triggered, immediately restricts gas flow to a non-hazardous level (bypass flow) to prevent dangerous release of gas into the home. Safety+PLUS® gas connectors are designed, machined and assembled in the USA at the company’s manufacturing plant in Corona, CA.

Throughout the years, BrassCraft Manufacturing has continually refined, enhanced and innovated the way plumbing products are used and installed. Founded in 1946, BrassCraft Manufacturing innovated and perfected the one-piece water supply valve and the flexible water supply tube. Today these products have become the standard for residential and commercial plumbing projects.
