PLYMOUTH, Minn. — Dakota Supply Group (DSG) 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 electrical, plumbing, heating and air, waterworks, communications, utilities, and on-site sewer, water, and well. DSG has grown to over 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," said Paul Kennedy, president and CEO of DSG.

Over the last several years, DSG has seen tremendous growth through a combination of strategic acquisitions, opening new locations, and organic growth in all seven industry verticals they serve.
