APR Supply buys plumbing and HVAC market wholesaler
APR Supply Co. has purchased Pennsylvania plumbing and HVAC wholesaler W.G. Balph Co. Terms were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of Balph Co. represents a continuation of APR’s aggressive growth strategy,” said APR Chief Operating Officer David Robinson. “More specifically, this move is an extension of our existing joint venture business model.”
Two Balph stores — one in Pittsburgh, the other in Greensburg, Pa. — will become APR branches, and the company will open two more APR Supply Co. locations in the Pittsburgh area, thanks to a venture with electrical supplier Schaedler Yesco. The two companies currently share 10 locations.
