Founded by Al Pekelney in 1947, Altherm continues to represent top manufacturers in the plumbing and heating industry.
From the start, Altherm has been providing superior representation in an ever changing market. In more recent years, the company has added a business development and showroom team. These groups provide expertise on local plumbing codes to consulting on wholesale and contractor needs. These teams also train and assist with new displays across 400 showrooms throughout the metropolitan New York and New Jersey areas.
“As the industry has evolved, so has Altherm” said Tom Gallagher, president of Altherm. “The team has been able to adapt over the years and this has been paramount to our longevity. Whether it’s communicating supply chain issues or delays, or transitioning to a work-from-home environment and conducting virtual training, the team has kept up and pivoted when needed."
Even as the pandemic has proved to be a challenging couple of years for many, Altherm has surpassed many of its manufacturers’ sales goals.
