APR Supply Co. Expands Reach to Steel
Following weeks of negotiating and strategizing, APR Supply Co.
is prepared to announce the acquisition of W.G. Balph Company.
The transition occurred began June 2014, with the completion of
a four-branch addition to be completed within subsequent year.
W.G. Balph Company is a plumbing, heating, and HVAC distributor
founded in 1926 by Bill Ralph. In 1995, ownership of the company
passed to the MacVitties. The business operated two branch
locations Ė one in Pittsburgh, PA and the other in Greensburg,

ďThe acquisition of
Balph Company represents a continuation of APRís aggressive growth
strategy. More specifically, this move is an extension of our
existing joint venture business model,Ē said David Robinson, COO at
APR Supply Co.
The two Balph locations will eventually be supplemented by two
additional APR Supply Co. locations in the Pittsbugh market, thanks
to APRís joint venture relationship with Schaedler Yesco, a
distributor of electrical supplies and equipment. The two companies
currently share ten branch locations.
