History of How We MAKE IT eZ

Here at Picoma, we’ve been making it easy to install electrical systems since our founding in 1946. Our original business, Pipe Coupling Mfrs. Inc., focused on the fabrication of steel pipe couplings for the gas, oil and water industries, as well as rigid conduit couplings for electrical raceways. Our internal threading expertise quickly earned us a reputation for high quality and quick-service standards, allowing us to rapidly expand our portfolio.

Today we continue that tradition of service as a division of Zekelman Industries, the largest independent steel pipe and tube manufacturer in North America and a leader in modular construction innovations. With next-day delivery available from our strategically located stocking warehouses, we’re doing our part to MAKE IT eZ.
