Ferguson Acquires Summit Pipe and Supply

HVAC and plumbing distributor Ferguson, Newport News, VA, has acquired Summit Pipe and Supply Co. Inc. and Summit Pipe and Supply Company of Mississippi, Inc. Summit is a waterworks distributor with three locations in Northport and Wetumpka, AL, and Jackson, MS.

"Summit is a market leader with very talented associates that will be a tremendous asset to Ferguson as we grow our waterworks footprint in this region," said Ferguson CEO Frank Roach. "Strong vendor alignment coupled with the ability to add continuous territory, filling in between our existing Florida and Baton Rouge Ferguson Waterworks locations, made this an attractive acquisition."

Summit was founded in 2001 by brothers Doug and Mark Pugh. Doug will continue as the Tuscaloosa branch manager, and Mark will serve as the area's sales manager. All former Summit locations will operate as satellite locations of the Ferguson Santa Rosa, FL, branch under the leadership of Ferguson General Manager George Wainwright.

Ferguson has sales of $8.1 billion and 17,000 associates in 1,350 service centers in the U.S., the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Ferguson is part of Wolseley plc.
