Lebanon, Pa.-based APR Supply recently acquired the plumbing, heating and air-conditioning distribution business of Newark, Del.-based Bell Supply.

“We’re both family-run area distributors and now APR, through its Bell Supply location, will be able to offer its customer base an even greater variety of products and services,” APR Supply President and CEO Scott Weaver said.

Bell Supply was established in 1956 and also features a large kitchen and bath showroom that will be remodeled as an American Standard DXV showroom. This is APR’s first Delaware location.

APR also announced the opening of its newest branch location at 510 South Cedar Lane in Upper Darby, Pa. The new branch fills the company’s gap in its service to the eastern Pennsylvania region, APR noted. The building, formerly a Verizon facility, features a large modern sales area to serve local HVAC, plumbing and electrical contractors that is convenient to all major highways in the area and represents the company’s 37th branch, APR explained.

“This new location helps APR keep pace with the growth of our Lehigh Valley market and allows us to offer all the services APR customers have grown to expect,” Weaver said.
