Tipton Company was founded in 1935 by Zeke Tipton. Zeke got his start in the plumbing industry in 1929. Zeke worked for his uncle, C.F Adams who was a manufacturer in the plumbing industry in Fort Worth, TX.
Zeke worked through Texas A & M University and graduated with an Engineering Degree in 1934. Zeke's graduating class had 120 members, all male and all in the Army Corps. Zeke was Captain WWII serving in Germany and earning multiple medals including a Bronze Star for Bravery.
After returning from Germany in 1946, Zeke and his wife Cecile put all of their efforts into the humble beginnings of Tipton Company. From day one, his motto was, “SERVICE STARTS HERE!”
