World Wide Metric celebrates 50 years
World Wide Metric, a global supplier specializing in the distribution of valves, flanges, piping systems and hydraulic components, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The family owned company was founded in 1970 by former ship captain Constantinos Contos in Brooklyn, New York, originally established as a ship repair company. In 1985, Contos made the decision to leave the ship repair business and focus solely on the wholesale distribution of metric parts to the marine and industrial markets. By 2008, World Wide Metric was stocking more than 50,000 products across the U.S. To commemorate the anniversary, World Wide Metric has released a celebratory logo with the tagline “Keeping the World Flowing” to continue to pay tribute to the company’s legacy as a supplier in the maritime industry.
