Sioux Chief Hosts Plant
Tour for ASA Young Executives.
Rough plumbing manufacturing plant tour gives ASA wholesaler and
contractor executives an opportunity to understand Sioux Chief
product and process designs for time, labor, and money savings in

actually makes at its own facility,” said ASA member, Luke
Wiedeman of Reeves-Wiedeman Company. “Amazing, they do a whole
