The GT flow center has expanded to an entire product line of non-pressurized flow centers for residential as well as commercial use.

This family owned company started out in one building with four employees. It has expanded over the years to two manufacturing locations and three warehouse locations, serving customers across the United States and Canada. The number one priority, continued throughout the years is to deliver the best quality product and unbeatable customer service.

B&D prides itself on becoming an industry leader.
