Odessa, TX-based PVF wholesaler City Pipe & Supply Corp., a 100% employee-owned company, is celebrating 66 years in business this year. City Pipe’s motto for all of these years has been “Depend On Us, We Perform.”

The company coupled an anniversary celebration with an open house for its new facility in Weatherford, TX, in April, that offered customers and vendors food, live music and a poker tournament.

The Weatherford store moved to a new 13,800-sq.-ft. warehouse and sales office with a 5.5-acre pipe yard in January 2008, more than doubling its former size. The new facility has triple the number of employees and serves North Texas, southern Oklahoma and eastern Texas. In addition, the Odessa branch opened a new 6,000-sq.-ft. shipping and receiving warehouse this summer in order to better serve its customers in West Texas. 

Along with the anniversary celebration and open house, City Pipe’s employees held their fourth annual ESOP meeting where they discussed the plan and its benefits, recognized outstanding employees and offered door prizes. The first ESOP retiree was presented with her first distribution from the plan.
