About M.G. Newell
M.G. Newell was founded by Myron G. Newell in 1885 as a supply store selling everything from hand churns to buggies. The company was first incorporated in May 1908. At the suggestion of Newell’s son, Burton M. Newell, Sr., the company began specializing in the dairy business in the early 1920’s.
Over the years, the company has expanded to become a full service distributor and systems integrator of sanitary equipment for the food, beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical and personal care industries. M.G. Newell carries a broad range of pumps, valves, tanks, fittings and other manufacturing supply needs. In addition to general supplies and parts, the company also works with customers to design and fabricate cost-effective, customized systems to fit their space requirements. M.G. Newell engineers build sanitary design into every system, from pump carts to valve clusters to batching, mixing or inline blending systems. Field technicians conduct instrument repair, preventative maintenance, calibration of existing equipment and assist in the start-up of new installments on-site.
Currently, M.G. Newell has three locations: Greensboro, NC, Louisville, KY and Nashville, TN. With the addition of the Louisville and Nashville divisions, the original M.G. Newell now functions as the corporate headquarters and houses the Greensboro division.
