APR Supply Co., a third generation, family-owned HVAC and plumbing wholesale distributor, has announced the acquisition of four new branch locations in Western Pennsylvania. The locations, formerly Plumbers Equipment Co. — a division of the Chicago-based Crawford Supply, feature large, modern sales areas to service local HVAC, plumbing and hydronics contractors as well as spacious kitchen and bath showrooms in three of the four locations to service consumers. The new branches, located in Greensburg, North Hills, Plum Borough and South Hills, will expand APR’s service area in the western region.
"We are excited to expand our service area in the Pittsburgh region and offer the addition of HVAC equipment to that contractor community. We anticipate the Plum Borough location will serve as a regional distribution center and will help APR keep pace with the growth of our western region,” said Scott Weaver, president and CEO of APR Supply Co.
“We are glad to have found a great acquirer in APR Supply Co. The company has a similar tradition of servicing customers in the wholesale distribution market with quality products and services,” added Steven Feiger, CEO of Crawford Supply.
This news comes on the heels of APR’s announcement of a new distribution center in Lebanon, Pennsylvania earlier this year, that is set to open by July and be fully operational by fall of this year.
It is APR Supply Co.'s intention to continue to grow at a consistent, brisk rate. It is expected to be accomplished through a combination of organic growth, as well as by acquisition and new markets.
