ABOUT US

A Family Owned WBE

Minority-and women-owned businesses provide ever-increasing value to our state's economy!

Owned and operated by Wendy Webber of Longmeadow, Massachusetts, Kittredge started as a local typewriter and cash register business in 1921. The business has since grown into a $57 million dollar equipment and supply giant that now employs almost 100 people throughout New England and New York State. We are proud of our reputation for excellent customer service and long relationships we have established with our customers. We were officially certified as a Massachusetts Woman-Owned Business in 2011, a Nationally Certified Woman Owned Business in 2017 and most recently a New York State Certified Woman Owned Business in 2018.

WBE Certification provides a valuable jumpstart to many of these businesses which make up our state's fastest growing business sector by facilitating easier access to the various phases of state purchasing and contracting.

Formerly located on Columbus Ave in Springfield, we relocated to our state-of-the-art Agawam distribution facility in 2007 to better serve our customers with a greater focus on delivery and distribution. We now have the largest combined show room space in Greater New England / New York State at our facilities in Agawam, Ma, Concord, NH, Burlington, VT, and most recently Albany, NY with over 70,000 square feet of inventory and warehouse. The move has enhanced the ability of our 35 sales representatives and team of 14 project managers to service every corner of New England quicker and more efficiently than ever before.

WBE Certificate

"The WBE status has opened many avenues of business that were not available to us before. We continue to grow but still like to be considered a local family business that supports the community that supports us."

CONSULTATIVE DESIGN & PROJECT MANAGEMENT

All Phases of Service

From concept to design, budgeting to value engineering, to project management, we offer the expertise to augment designs and meet the client's requirements. We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we have developed with many local General Contractors from small to the largest multi-million dollar projects we have completed. We can effectively manage costs and provide timely response on any project. We consult with both the architect and the client about the kitchens use, specifying equipment that best suits the application in both function and cost. Our team includes project designers, CAD engineers, field representatives, and project managers. The Total Package concept allows transition from concept to design, through installation and application.
