The U.S. market has been a bright spot in 2013 for Wolseley plc, which is based in the UK. The business reported ongoing headwinds in Europe resulting in headcount reductions in the region in 2013. In mid-2013, Wolseley changed its leadership structure in North America. Frank Roach, who was responsible for the U.S. and Canada, switched to focus primarily on the U.S. The distributor tapped John Martin to lead Canada. Also in mid-2013, Ferguson, Wolseley’s U.S. business, broke ground on a new distribution center in Ohio to aid in delivering product to customers more quickly – next day in some cases.
