About Us

Our Company

We provide easy, safe, and secure access to underground utilities. We work with our customers to produce custom solutions designed to meet their specific access needs.

  • A History of Moving the Industry Forward

    Established in 1849, Bingham & Taylor has proudly served the water and natural gas industries for over 170 years. We were foundational members of AWWA and AGA, and have long supported these important institutions, whose missions are to improve the quality and supply of water and gas throughout North America. We were the original manufacturer and patent holder of the iconic “Buffalo-Style” valve box. In addition, B&T was first with plastic valve boxes in the 1960’s, first with injection molded meter pits, and first with hundreds of small product enhancements to support our customer needs.

  • A Commitment to Quality

    Bingham & Taylor is committed to manufacturing the highest quality products available, with 100% of our products made in the US. Headquartered in Culpeper, Virginia, B&T has three manufacturing facilities located in Culpeper (cast iron foundry), Fredericksburg, VA (injection molded plastics), and Spotsylvania, VA (blow molded plastics). In addition, we have established distribution centers in Denver, CO and Corona, CA, which allows us to efficiently reach customers in the 48 contiguous United States.

  • Providing Resources for Our Customers

    Bingham & Taylor’s development team specializes exclusively in products that serve the special needs of our customers. Our craftsmen and technicians are true manufacturing professionals and are the primary reason we have earned the reputation as our industry’s leader in product design and innovation. Our facilities include in-house engineering, CAD design, and pattern shop to support design, tooling, and sampling for projects. We have leveraged technology in manufacturing to automate many processes in order to produce high-quality, consistent products.

  • Recycling and the Environment

    Bingham & Taylor is committed to a sustainable business practice of using recycled iron in our cast iron manufacturing. Items such as used car rotors make excellent sources of iron when melted down and reused. 100% of the iron used in our castings comes from recycled material. We also offer recycling services for any utilities switching from cast iron meter lids to AMI friendly plastic meter lids.
