Torrco began in 1917 as Brass City Plumbing Supply in Waterbury,
Connecticut. A flood in 1929 forced the company to move to
Torrington, where it changed its name to Torrington Supply Co. The
company began expanding in 1987 with the addition of supply centers.
In 2009, it acquired Litco Supply, which added six locations and
three kitchen and bath showrooms. In 2012, the company changed its
name to Torrco. Today it has locations in New York, Connecticut and
Torrco will be relocating its existing 3,000 square-foot location at
407 N. Main Street to 21 Grace Church Street in a 10-year lease.
“Simone Development is extremely pleased that Torrco has selected
our property for their newest location,” Josh Gopan, director of
leasing for Simone Metro Properties, said in a statement. “The
property was attractive to Torrco because of its easy access to
I-95, ample private parking, convenient loading docks and high
Torrco was represented by Paul Enea of RM Friedland.
The property is now 100 percent occupied, with Dipietro Trading, a
purveyor of fine natural stone, and Empire Coffee Roasters occupying
the balance of the space.
