Last Updated: January 27, 2023By Categories: Newsline

Dakota Supply Group announced the launch of its year-long marketing campaign, 125 years young, celebrating its 125th year in business.

In 1898, opening as a small plumbing distributor in Fargo, North Dakota, DSG has since expanded into seven verticals, serving the industries of water and well, electrical, plumbing, heating and air, waterworks, communications, utilities, and on-site sewer. DSG has grown to more than 52 locations in seven states, with plans to open three more locations in 2023, adding an eighth state to their footprint by the end of the year.

“This year marks a historic milestone for all employee owners at DSG,” says Paul Kennedy, president and CEO of DSG. “Over DSG’s many years, we’ve seen a lot—from wars, depressions, recessions, and global pandemics as well as rapid technological innovations across every industry we serve—and despite our age, we feel young, vibrant, and energized.”

Kennedy further states: “Our success over the last 125 years would not be possible without our amazing team of employee-owners, our loyal customer base, and the partnerships from our vendor community. I am beyond proud of what we have accomplished, and where are going, and looking forward to using the momentum of our history to propel us forward. We’re 125 years young, and I feel we are just getting started.”

Headquartered in Plymouth, Minnesota, DSG is independent and 100% employee-owned company with more than 970 employee-owners in more than 52 locations across seven states: Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
