MSC Holdings, the parent company of Morrison Supply and Express Pipe & Supply, recently acquired the assets of Mesa, Ariz.-based Farnsworth Wholesale.

Farnsworth has five locations and focuses on the plumbing, HVAC and waterworks markets. Farnsworth will continue to operate under its existing brand name.

“With the addition of Arizona to our business, we have become a formidable supplier from Texas over to Southern California, which gives us the opportunity to be a predominant supplier in the Southwest,” MSC Holdings CEO Chip Hornsby said. “Our focus will continue to be on serving our customers at the local level. We look forward to working with Farnsworth Wholesale’s leadership team to achieve their goals in the Arizona market. The performance of each location is what creates our success today and in the future.”

 Farnsworth Wholesale President Mark Shill added: “We are excited to be a part of the vision that Chip and company are undertaking. Chip has surrounded himself with an impressive team. With their experience it will assist us in broadening our offerings and lengthening our stride to be the top wholesaler in the Arizona market. We believe they can only add to our reputation and help us gain greater market share.”
