F.W. Webb acquires Palace Plumbing & Heating

F.W. Webb Company announced the acquisition of Palace Plumbing & Heating Supply, a wholesale distributor with locations in Manhattan and the Bronx.

“We have had a desire to get into New York City. Over the past couple of years, we have been working toward that goal by making acquisitions and opening new locations in the surrounding area,” said Jeff Pope, F.W. Webb president. “Palace is known to be a top supplier in the industry and we are pleased to have the opportunity to serve their customers.”

The wholesale stores will offer plumbing, heating, HVAC, refrigeration and PVF inventory for commercial and residential contractors. Services will include online ordering, an inventory replenishment program and 24/7 emergency service.

“F.W. Webb has that small family feel, but it is backed by a large distribution network. I’m confident that they will continue to provide the high-quality products and world-class service that our customers have become accustomed to over the last 44 years,” said Frank Hartman, principal executive officer, Palace Plumbing & Heating Supply.

In June, F.W. Webb expanded its business into Long Island with the acquisition of North Fork Plumbing & Heating Supply in Riverhead, New York.
