Also, Cregger Co. has agreed to purchase the assets of Scott's Inc., which has two locations in North Carolina: Whiteville and Lumberton. Scott's is a 69-year-old distributor of plumbing, lighting, water treatment, electrical and mobile home supplies.
“The associates of Scott's will enjoy some of the expanded benefits of working with a larger company with a broader set of resources,” a Cregger spokesman said. “Cregger Co. is benefiting by the addition of a very talented and aggressive group of customer-focused associates.”
In other news, Cregger has opened its first self-service facility in its Hickory, N.C. branch. The company recently moved into a larger facility.
“The bulk of our customers like the new self-service format,” a spokesman said. “While some customers still prefer letting us pull the orders, all appreciate being able to see exactly what we have available to them.”
