In 1928, Earle C. Reed established a manufacturing facility in Utica, New York called “The Utica Companies” to make cast iron radiators and baseboard heating. The company grew and, in the 1950s, began designing and manufacturing boilers. Over time the name of the company changed to Utica Boilers and product lines were added.
Today, Utica Boilers is a leading brand of ECR (Earle C. Reed) International, an organization under the umbrella of Granby Industries, LP, a division of TerraVest Industries, Inc. Of Canada. Granby Industries is a leader in the manufacturing and distribution of residential, light commercial and light industrial tanks for the safe storage and distribution of combustible liquids.
Utica Boilers continues to build gas and oil boilers inside our facility in Utica, NY with a research and development lab for hydronic and air source equipment design and testing right on site.
A commitment to the community
One of the many ways that Utica shares its commitment to the community of Utica is its continued support of the world famous Boilermaker Road Race. The 15K Road Race was founded in 1978 by Earle C. Reed as a way celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and to give back to the community that has supported the family business, at the time called Utica Radiator. In its first year, the started with a budget of $750 and had 800 runners. Today the race has grown to draw more than 19,000 competitors from all around the world and, along with the famous 15K race, also hosts a 5K event, kid’s race, and wheelchair event.
