F.W. Webb Co., has been busy in New Jersey, opening two locations over a one-week timeframe as it “continues to establish itself throughout the Garden State as a customer resource with a large selection of quality products matched by signature service,” the company stated.
F.W. Webb opened a 90,000-sqaure-foot hub in Piscataway, N.J., to serve area professionals and homeowners, and bring greater amounts and variety of inventory to Webb customers throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. F.W. Webb also announced the acquisition of Master Wholesale Supply of Vernon, N.J., making it the fifth F.W. Webb location in New Jersey.
“Our new Vernon location allows us to grow relationships with contractors and industry professionals in northern New Jersey and have a full-service location in the New York metropolitan area for the first time,” F.W. Webb President Jeff Pope said. “Meanwhile, the Piscataway location will be a material hub for us, as well as an important resource for both local contractors and all customers in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. It will allow us to maintain high volumes of inventory in closer proximity to all our locations in this geographic region to meet growing demand.”
Both new locations are serving area contractors, facilities managers and building professionals. Piscataway features a full-service open-concept wholesale store, as Vernon will eventually. Both locations offer phone and online ordering with pickup or delivery options, services such as inventory replenishment, and 24/7 emergency service. A Frank Webb bath, kitchen and lighting showroom for homeowners, contractors, designers and architects is planned for each location.
F.W. Webb Vernon
The F.W. Webb Vernon location is the former Master Wholesale Supply company opened in 1976 by the DelGrosso family. Russ DelGrosso has been at the helm since 1994. He and his team have joined F.W. Webb and will remain a familiar presence to existing customers in northern New Jersey and the New York metro area as Webb welcome new customers.
F.W. Webb Piscataway
The F.W. Webb Piscataway location is essentially new construction and – at 90,000-square-feet. – is the largest Webb facility in New Jersey and among the largest of the company’s nearly 90 locations across nine states. This location had its origins in last year’s acquisition of Grant Supply, with branches in North Brunswick and Pleasantville. Inventory and the 40 Webb staff members from the leased property in North Brunswick have transferred to Piscataway with an additional four new associates joining them. More hires are anticipated as the new hub becomes fully operational.

Since then, the company has purchased three additional supply companies in New Jersey for a total of five locations across the Garden State: Piscataway, Pleasantville, Elmwood Park, Trenton and Vernon. Just across New Jersey’s western border, F.W. Webb has a location in Allentown, Pa.
