The acquisition of Bergen expands Webb into the New Jersey market.

"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.
