About Waites Company

Waites was established in 1880 originally as a hardware store. 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.

In 1979, Waites was acquired by Washburn-Garfield, a leader in industrial pipe, valve, fittings and controls throughout the New England region. Both Waites and Washburn-Garfield pride themselves in their reputation as having the most experienced technical staff to provide solutions for all your technical requirements.
