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.
