Traeger’s Industrial division has always been available for our partner manufacturers who wished to sell their products locally, and for the scores of exporters who wished to purchase and resell Traeger’s stocks of valves out of the country. Although Traeger Brothers is the 23rd oldest company in South Florida it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Traeger threw its hat into the ring of full time industrial sales in South Florida. The products were nothing new; Traeger had been selling cast steel Kitz brand valves from the downtown Miami warehouse since the early 90s. They began to stock forged steel Smith brand valves a few years later in their small warehouse downtown.
The new millennium saw Traeger comfortably housed in their new West Kendall warehouse, where there was now over 32,000 square feet of storage space for pipe, valves, fittings, stud bolts and gaskets. This storage space was made deliverable when Traeger purchased a fleet of delivery trucks, and added drivers and warehouse personnel to fill and empty them. When skilled industrial salespeople, with decades of experience in the Florida markets were brought on-board, they began to move this new stock. Through their technical skills in process equipment operation and knowledge of the companies and local industries, Traeger’s domestic sales were ready to begin.
And begin they did! After a year or so of getting the word out, hundreds of major industrial plants and contractors now count on Traeger’s daily deliveries for their planned maintenance, as well as their emergency pipe, valve and fitting requirements. Focused mainly on the energy markets within South Florida, Traeger sales staff works with power plants and oil storage facilities from Key West to Ft. Pierce.
As a one stop industrial piping shop, Traeger can deliver every fitting that a job might require, on the day that the job is scheduled. For example, their truck might deliver to a power plant in Ft. Lauderdale 200 ft of 14” Extra Heavy seamless carbon steel pipe, 3 90 degree elbows, 2 tees, 12 weld neck flanges, 256 stud bolts, 2 welding outlets, 2 Smith brand forged steel socket weld globe valves, 1 Kitz brand cast steel gate valve and 12 Lamons brand 316 stainless steel and flex graphite spiral wound gaskets, all from their Miami stock. With a day’s notice, Traeger’s partner manufacturers can also supply steam traps, expansion joints, pipe hangers, strut, actuated valves and other piping products. No other South Florida industry supplier stocks industrial steel products like Traeger Brothers. Check with their technical sales experts for your company’s industrial PVF need today!

Grand Bahama has long been the industrial hub of this wide ranging and diverse island chain. The Freeport power plants and oil storage facilities are all customers of Traeger’s Industrial team. Recently, a satisfied customer with operations in the Bahamas invited Traeger to bid on their oil storage terminal construction job in the States. In this way the Traeger Advantage grows into new areas, brought along as a trusted supply partner as customers expand their geographic reach. Oil storage tank products are Traeger’s most popular export to this market, including valves, steel plates and Technip/Coflexip’s floating roof drainage hoses. Many of the oil storage tanks here are built from the steel plates supplied by Traeger. Terminal operators and contractors here and around the world all count on Traeger Brothers for their steel pipe valve and fitting supplies.
The Bahamas construction community has partnered with Traeger’s trusted manufacturers to move a range of popular building products into their resorts, office buildings and government facilities. Hurricane rated windows, doors and roofing are only some of the products that have been tested, approved and certified to stand up in extreme coastal conditions and severe wind loads.
Traeger’s Telecom division holds the record as the longest established relationship in the chain. First known as BATELCO and now BTC, Bahamas Telecommunications (part of the Cable & Wireless family) is one of Traeger’s largest telecommunication customers.
The British Virgin Islands, already a haven for offshore corporations and yachting types continues to grow and diversify. As the seaport expands to host cruise ships and the upscale resort and housing market thrives, Traeger Brothers grows with their BVI business partners. Traeger’s construction division handles a diverse supply of materials for building and enhancing the core infrastructure. From the hospital and utilities work to the flawless finishes in the exclusive resorts, the British Virgin Islands have tapped the resources of Traeger’s Industrial, Waterworks and Construction divisions.
Since the 1990s, when Cable & Wireless began their relationship with Traeger, through the present day telecom and network provider LIME, Traeger has provided outside plant, premise and central office switching equipment to help the island grow for both its residents and its high speed banking and business needs. In the early 2000’s, Traeger was a main supplier of DSL equipment and CPE devices. As the premier Cisco partner Traeger provided BVI/Tortola and the entire region with a sophisticated MPLS network interconnecting the service of all of the Cable & Wireless branches throughout the Caribbean. Most recently Traeger provided the fiber optic cables needed to connect the BVI to the undersea cable network connecting through to the Dominican Republic and the world.
Traeger maintains a close relationship with LIME, providing telecom and data equipment to Tortola.
Once dominated by a huge refinery on St. Croix, the USVIs are diversifying their industrial base as they explore new avenues in the energy industry. Modernizing their desalinization system, changing their power generation from oil to gas and building solar power farms are all a part of the USVI’s renaissance.
Over the years the Traeger Industrial team helped build the refinery, modernize the power plants and their Waterworks Division helped upgrade the water distribution systems. They have relied on Traeger to help rebuild their newest rum distillery, replacing the unreliable stainless steel ball valves and iron butterfly valves originally provided by the low-bidder contractors, with our highly engineered Kitz premium valve line, thus enabling them to reach production targets previously unattained. The distillery also benefitted from Traeger’s expertise as it grew into a more modern facility, with its own water treatment and fueling system upgrades and expansions to all of its operations.
These islands in the Lesser Antilles have the third richest economy in the Americas; after the US and Canada. The economy here is mainly industrial due to its exploration of oil and natural gas reserves. In order to navigate the arena here, Traeger has enlisted the assistance of willing valve distributors and industrial supply agents. Together these partnerships allow Traeger to provide products to dozens of process plants in this region. Trinidad is also enamored of the Telecommunications division, utilizing Traeger’s expertise in this area as they modernize their network through our partner manufacturers.
For over 25 years Traeger has provided Telecommunications for Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) with outside plant, premise and central office switching equipment. Partially owned by Cable & Wireless, TSTT utilized Traeger Brothers in the early 2000’s to provide DSL equipment and CPE devices. Traeger, previously the premier Cisco partner, provided TSTT and the entire region with a sophisticated MPLS network interconnecting service all the Cable & Wireless branches throughout the Caribbean. Traeger maintains a close relationship with TSTT, providing telecom and data equipment to Trinidad and Tobago.
From high-rise multi-family developments in downtown Port of Spain, to housing projects in the countryside, Traeger Brothers has shipped steel, curtain wall aluminum, glass, windows and doors to complete projects on time and within budget. As part of our service, in conjunction with our manufacturers, Traeger Brothers’ commitment to customers provides onsite visits to confirm measurements and to make sure the job is perfectly executed.
The Traeger island history gets really interesting in this group of islands. “Back in the day” before the Internet Traeger Brothers was a reliable supplier of auto and truck parts to the Turks and Caicos. One customer, Cable and Wireless was so impressed by our service and ethics in the supply of their auto pool repair parts that they took time to help train the then-fledgling technology staff in the supply of telecom equipment. That experiment succeeded, and over the next ten years Cable and Wireless became a multi-million dollar customer with purchasing offices and operations spanning the entire British West Indies. As the networks grew from copper to fiber, Traeger’s Telecommunications Division grew as well, trading their stock of copper wire and desktop telephones for fibre optics reels, cell phones and networking switches.
In Venezuela, sometimes ideological goals sometimes take priority over business decisions. This can make making Venezuela a difficult market in which to be successful. There is no shortage of need for Traeger’s pipes, valves and fittings in the refineries of this country. When the climate is right for business, Traeger plays a big part in the industrial growth and maintenance of this rich-in-resources country.
