S. G. Torrice
Your HVAC Partner Since 1958
S. G. Torrice is a full-service HVAC distributor that was founded in 1958 by Samuel G. Torrice. The original building was a small warehouse located in Melrose, Massachusetts that was only staffed by two employees. In the 60-plus years since, we have expanded to 12 branches and a full sheet metal shop and more than 100 employees serving HVAC dealers in Eastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and The Islands, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
In 2003, S. G. Torrice moved to our corporate headquarters at 80 Industrial Way in Wilmington, Massachusetts. This 100,000-plus square foot facility houses a warehouse fully stocked with equipment, parts, accessories and a full custom sheet metal shop, customer ordering counter, a show room, training room and our Inside Sales staff and corporate offices.
S. G. Torrice offers some of the top heating and cooling equipment brands in the industry. This includes American Standard, Trane, RunTru by Trane, Mitsubishi Electric Heating & Cooling and many more. We are the exclusive distributor in the Northeast of both the Trane and American Standard equipment lines.
Our commitment to fast, convenient customer service and continuous state of self improvement promoted us to open multiple strategically placed branches across our service area. S. G.
