About Waites Company

Founded and still located in Worcester, Massachusetts, Waites evolved to become a specialty industrial distributor focusing on cutting tools, abrasives, precision tools and industrial supplies. We are centrally located to serve the entire New England region for all these needs..

Waites Company has now become a part of The Collins Companies effective 7/1/2023. The Collins Companies has long been recognized as a large regional distributor of pipe, valves, fittings and engineered specialty items servicing customers throughout New England and upstate New York. They are also known for their two service divisions, Collins Compressors, sales and service of compressed air systems and International Valve and Instrument, testing and repair of all types of valves. They have been in business for over 100 years so hopefully, you may already be familiar with them.

We will continue to operate under our current name, Waites Company, as a division of the Collins Companies. The day-to-day operations out of the Worcester location will remain business as usual with just a larger resource behind us. We will eventually move locations from our existing building on Prescott Street to a new location near the current Worcester, MA facility and will send out an announcement when the move is final.
Waites has always prided ourselves on having the technical expertise that has allowed us to bring you a consultative approach to problem solving when it comes to your industrial supply needs, which will not change. However, now, combined with Collins’ size and expertise in valve automation, safety valve testing and repair, and compressor service and installation we have so much more to offer, including an additional four stocking warehouse locations in Connecticut, Maine and New York and an additional three sales offices in Haverhill, MA, Rochester and Buffalo, NY.


Waites Company is here to serve you. We understand how important quality and reliability is to your business. As your supplier, we make sure that everything we offer is of the highest quality available, affordable, and that you get what you need, when you need it. Our reputation depends on it, and in our industry, reputation is everything! If you would like to find out more about how Waites Company can help advance your success, get in touch today.
