In August State presented Coburn with a fully restored 1934 Ford V-8 stake bed pickup truck (resembling its first delivery truck) to commemorate the wholesaler's 75th anniversary.  

“State has developed a great relationship with Coburn Supply over the past few years,” said Jim Margoni, vice president of sales for State Water Heaters. “We were excited to be involved in the co-op program that provided the restored pickup truck to Coburn’s for their anniversary and look forward to a continued partnership.”

Coburn Supply, a wholesaler of heating and air conditioning equipment, refrigeration, electrical, builder products, and municipal and utility supplies, operates locations in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee. The company has distributed State residential and commercial water heaters since 2007.
