First Supply (Madison, WI) broke ground for a wholesale plumbing supply distribution facility in the Platteville Industrial Park in Platteville, WI. The 10,500-sq.-ft. building is projected to be completed in late June 2007 and will initially be staffed by three full-time employees. It will be First Supply’s 24th facility.

The new facility will improve access and service to customers in southwestern Wisconsin, northeastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held April 10.
