F.W. Webb to Acquire Bergen Industrial Supply

F.W. Webb Company , Bedford, MA, No. 6 on MDM's list of top HVACR/plumbing distributors, has agreed to acquire Bergen Industrial Supply, Elmwood Park, NJ. Bergen distributes industrial pipe, valves, and fittings to manufacturing companies across northern and central New Jersey. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bergen serves pharmaceutical, chemical processing, food and beverage, pulp and paper, cosmetic/personal care products, textile and utilities industries. The two companies today supply many of the same national customers.

"Our companies enjoy a natural synergy since we serve many of the same industries and carry complementary high-quality lines," said James Laporte, Sr., president, Bergen Industrial Supply. “Customers will continue working with their Bergen sales and service teams, but they will now have access to F.W. Webb’s deep resources and expanded offerings.”

“Bergen’s industry experience and strong customer base will help the Webb brand expand into the New Jersey market and help us deliver the best products to our customers,” said Jeff Pope, president, F.W. Webb.

F.W. Webb will maintain the Bergen name on its locations for the immediate future.
