F.W. Webb Company Opens First
Wholesale Stores in New York City.
F.W. Webb Company now has a presence in New York City following
the acquisition of Palace Plumbing & Heating Supply, a wholesale
distributor with a location in Manhattan and the Bronx. Owning
more than a dozen locations in upstate New York, the transaction
will extend F.W. Webb into a vital metropolitan region and grow
the company’s footprint across the state.
"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."
Effective today, the two locations will begin operating as F.W.
Webb. Employment offers were made to all Palace Plumbing &
Heating Supply associates and most of them will become F.W. Webb
employees. 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 Office, Palace Plumbing & Heating
In June, F.W. Webb expanded its business into Long Island with the
acquisition of North Fork Plumbing & Heating Supply in Riverhead,
NY. Earlier this year, the company also became an official sponsor
of the New York Yankees.
