2M Celebrates 40 Years of “Legendary Service”


BILLINGS, Mont., June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2M Company, Inc., wholesale distributor to the water systems, irrigation, treatment, retention, and waste water industries, is celebrating its 40th year in business. It was 1978 when founders Bill Mills and Chester Majors (the two “M”s behind the name), along with 40-year-veteran Dan Ruff, launched the company in Billings, Mont. with a primary focus on delivering exemplary customer service.

The first to open its doors on Saturdays, extend summer hours, offer customer trip promotions, and provide emergency service “24/7” – even on holidays – 2M steadily grew from a small, local operation to a company with 15 locations across eight states in the Rocky Mountains, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest.

“It was the company’s commitment to providing the best inventory, the most knowledgeable staff, and the most attentive customer service that propelled 2M from the reputable local guys to leading industry players,” said H.A. “Buzz” Mills, President of 2M and son of founder Bill Mills.

2M’s leading Inventory Container Program, its multiple turbine build facilities, and its mission to provide what they coined “legendary service” at every customer touchpoint, not only gained the company a loyal following, but also caught the attention of Headwater Companies, a collective group of leading groundwater distributors owned by Franklin Electric. 2M joined the publicly traded company in 2017.

“As part of the Headwater Companies family, we’ve been able to extend our reach, increase our buying power, and take even better care of our customers,” said Mills. “Our partnership with Headwater Companies will only lead to greater success for 2M and our customers as we continue to expand into new markets throughout the West in the upcoming years.”
