From Pipes, Artisans and Trademarks, by José Manuel Lopes

Sparta Industries is based in Sparta, NC. It was created in the 1940s by David and Paul Lavietes, and originally called D&P Pipeworks. It began production in 1943 and at the end of the 1950s Dr. Grabow took it over. At the end of the 1970s Sparta became one of the biggest pipe makers in the USA, and the Dr. Grabow brand was the number one in sales in the country. Today it makes various brands, producing over a million pipes a year, perhaps the largest amount from just one factory.

The company was bought in the 1990s by Lane, Ltd., a giant in the North American distribution sector. It produces and represents various brands, such as Aldo Velani, Alpha, Barontini, Cesare, and Mastercraft.
