With 12 locations
across New York and New Jersey, Wallwork Bros, Inc. is a leading
supplier of heating and cooling products in the Northeast. Founded
in 1920, the company employs 68 associates and is a major
distributor of both residential and commercial Trane products. The
company will rebrand as Wallwork, a Ferguson enterprise.
Ferguson solidified its growth in the New York metro area with the
acquisition of Davis & Warshow in 2012 and the creation of its first
Market Distribution Center in 2015 – a facility designed to provide
its customers in the New York-metro area same day or next day
product deliveries within a 100-mile radius. Last year, the company
expanded its foothold in the market with the opening of a new
showroom in Brooklyn’s waterfront neighborhood, Brooklyn Bridge
Park. After the acquisitions of Blackman Plumbing Supply and
Wallwork, Ferguson has 99 locations in New York and New Jersey.
“Blackman Plumbing Supply and Wallwork are two well-established
companies in the New York metro area. Both have a long history and
great customer relationships in the market,” said Ferguson CEO Kevin
Murphy. “Our expanded footprint will allow us to better serve our
customer base, particularly on Long Island.”
