Arizona's largest family-owned and operated plumbing supply company, Central Arizona Supply, is expanding its merchandise offering this month with the introduction of an appliance division that will round out its comprehensive inventory of parts, products and fixtures for every area of the home.
In a rare move for an independent business, the Mesa-headquartered company has signed deals with 20 major appliance retailers ranging from global giants such as Sub-Zero, Wolf and Monogram to boutique, high-quality brands like BlueStar, Bertazzoni and Smeg. The new division offers an extensive selection of appliances, as well as certified installation, including ranges, cooktops, ovens, microwaves, outdoor grills, range hoods, full-size refrigeration, column refrigeration, wine refrigeration, under-counter refrigeration, dishwashers and integrated coffee makers. Central Arizona Supply now carries the following brands: Alfresco Grills, Asko, Bertazzoni, Blue Star, Coyote Grills, Electrolux, LG, Ilve, Monogram, Perlick, Scotsman, Smeg, Speed Queen, Sub-Zero, Wolf & Cove, U-Line, Vent-A-Hood, Verona and Viking.
"This is a big move for us at Central Arizona Supply and we are proud to now offer a diverse selection of appliances that range from household names to more boutique brands," said Jeremy Smith, owner and director of showrooms at Central Arizona Supply. "We pride ourselves on curating the industry's most interesting and innovative products, at every price-point, that meet the highest quality craftsmanship, reliability and lasting durability standards. Our customers can now envision their homes in a new way by seeing, touching and feeling their appliances in a model-home setting before they buy."
This one-of-a-kind buying experience is a trademark of the fourth-generation Central Arizona Supply, where each showroom is carefully curated for the market in which it serves. The expert showroom staff cater to individual styles and tastes to help customers personalize their space, walking them through the selection and design process to identify the right combination of products to fit the vision they have for their home. Central Arizona Supply's personalized service offerings include "try before you buy" options and plumbing service counters available to assist with any and all plumbing needs.
Central Arizona Supply's Scottsdale and Phoenix showrooms are the first of the company's 10 Arizona locations to feature appliances, which are displayed within impressive full-scale kitchen vignettes. Flagstaff, Show Low and Mesa showrooms will follow suit in early 2020.
"Our innovative, high quality family of brands fit perfectly into Central Arizona Supply's local lineup of specialty home pieces that meet the needs of the Arizona homeowner, especially within the luxury segment," said Liz Hossack, vice president of sales at Sub-Zero Group Southwest. "With unique design features like our iconic Sub-Zero Refrigeration, red knobs on our Wolf Ranges and our best-in-class cleaning specialist in Cove, these showrooms allow customers to fully experience our products and feel confident in their buying decisions. Being a third generation, family owned business, just like Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove, it was a natural fit for a partnership."
Central Arizona Supply is a fourth-generation family business with several divisions including showroom — encompassing plumbing, appliances, lighting and decorative hardware — commercial, and heating and air.
