We are pleased to introduce a new, updated 2016 American Granby catalog. We have streamlined the book to better meet your buying needs. Other improvements include removing blank pages, additional sub-tabs, and revised page numbers. You will find our website has also been updated with the newly improved catalog pages. Qualified customers will be receiving their new catalog via their salesperson by the end of the year.
We are excited to announce our plans to expand our Liverpool, NY headquarters. Over 10 years ago we invested in a brand new facility to serve the needs of all of you, our valued customers. Your support of our efforts has been so generous that it’s time for us to expand in order to, once again, exceed your product and service expectations.
Next month we break ground on a 42,000 square foot warehouse expansion. When it’s complete, we will increase our Liverpool, NY facility to 155,000 square feet. The expansion is scheduled for completion by May 2016.
Construction of the expanded facility will not interfere with our existing warehouse operations, so our product offering and service levels will continue to be the best in the business.
You can follow the progress of our construction project below.
5/26/16 Construction is complete and we've begun to move into our new expansion.

Effective April 2010 our freight prepaid minimum is $1300 to all of the Continental United States.
Effective August 29, 2013 please note “Additional Freight Charges” apply to the Freight section of our Terms and Conditions.
This new freight charge now covers any special delivery circumstance that includes but is not limited to, residential delivery, remote area delivery and lift gate service.
Effective January 1, 2014, the new Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (S.3874) took effect. This Federal lead law redefines the words “Lead Free”. As of this date the U.S. will adopt the current California, Vermont, Maryland and Louisiana (as of 2013) standard for maximum lead content in a plumbing fixture in contact with water used for human consumption. The new law will limit the content of lead in these plumbing fixtures to a weighted average lead content of less than 0.25%.
We will continue to make available leaded brass and bronze products for sale to select markets (Turf Irrigation and Swimming Pool and Spa except in California) only for applications that are not used with water for human consumption. We will discontinue brass and bronze leaded products whose sales do not warrant us maintaining an inventory.
American Granby will not accept returns of any leaded products. Due to the size and scope of the potential leaded product that could be left in the inventories of thousands of customers in the remaining 46 states that will have to comply with this new law, returns of these products will not be reasonably workable.
The AGI website has complete listings of No Lead products. For your reference we have attached a listing of the four NO LEAD symbols and explanations we are using to designate NO LEAD?products in our catalog. If you have any questions about this conversion please feel free to contact your AGI sales representative or your Customer Service representative.
