Company History / Overview
For over 85 years, Plumbers Supply Co. has stood proud as the region’s ultimate supply and service source in the plumbing, heating and piping industry. In 1928, John Werst Sr. co-founded the first of what have become five separate divisions, 10 branch offices, and a main warehouse facility boasting 50,000 different products at a value of more then $20,000,000.
With so many divisions and branches, Plumbers Supply Co. has grown to become the preferred source in the region. Plumbers Supply Co. prides itself on continuing what allowed it to grow so successfully; extensive inventories, close customer relationships supported by knowledgeable staff, and quick response times.
Plumbers Supply Co. is organized into five separate divisions; Industrial/PVF, Plumbing, Hydronics/Pump, HVAC, and Fire Protection. Each of our branches maintains an impressive inventory, and has the added advantage of drawing upon the 50,000 plus item inventory of the Louisville location.
Equipped with a massive fleet of trucks at each location, Plumbers Supply Co. can quickly dispatch everything from pick-up trucks to tractor trailers to your jobsite. Deliveries can be arranged for specific times, or in an emergency, one hour deliveries can be made from each branch.
We have personnel on call around the clock, every day of the year, to allow our customers access to our inventory during emergencies. Ask us how you can check your pricing, stock and even place orders 24/7 via a secure Internet Account.
