It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since Walker Supply, Inc. (based out of Pittsburgh) acquired three Pennsylvania locations from Turf Trade, a New Jersey based supplier. I felt that it would be appropriate to provide an update on the progress of this historic event for Walker Supply.
As 2017 winds down, we want to reflect on the past year, as well as take a brief look into 2018. We would be remiss not to mention just how important our great family of customers are to us. Our success is in large credit to their support and ongoing loyalty. We would like to thank them for entrusting us to be responsible for part of their budgetary expenditures. If you are not yet a customer, we invite you to join our family in 2018. It would be our great pleasure to serve you.
May you all have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!
2017 has been a big year for Walker Supply! The company completed a major undertaking acquiring locations in Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Scranton. Included in this acquisition were 9 employees, inventory, and several other assets such as trucks, warehouse, and office equipment. It is difficult to get to know people when there are hours between locations. We are very thankful that all employees met in the Pittsburgh facility on August 1st for a team building event. It was a great day for all of us to get to know each other a little better, share some experiences, and grow together. We all share the task at hand “creating lifelong customers”.
As Thanksgiving is on our door step, Keith, Mike, and Bob want to take this opportunity to give thanks to all that have made Walker Supply successful. This includes our team members, supply partners, industry friends, and equally important, our customers.
Everybody is busy this time of year. At Walker Supply, it has been a little busier than normal with the expansion of our business operations earlier this year. With it being such an exciting time in WSI's history, we would like to take this opportunity to share with you a few key highlights of the past two years
