APR Supply acquires Sage Supply Co.
This will be APR Supply Co.’s first location in New York.
Lebanon, Pa.-based APR Supply Co. (listed as No. 69 on Supply House Times 2015 Premier 150) recently announced the acquisition of Sage Supply Co. The transition began in June 2015, and will be APR Supply Co.’s first location in New York.
Sage Supply Co., is a distributor of plumbing and HVAC products. Sage was founded in 1953 by Sam Ainslie, Al Anthony, George Ainslie and Earl Grady. Greg Fiske was the owner at the time of the acquisition. Sage operated one branch location in Johnson City, N.Y.
Sage Supply also offered one of the area’s premier bath showrooms. That Johnson City showroom will become the eighth APR Supply Co. location to display kitchen and bath fixtures, and will operate under the Oasis Showrooms name.
“The acquisition of Sage Supply represents a continuation of APR’s aggressive growth strategy,” said David Robinson, COO of APR Supply. “We are excited about this opportunity to grow in a new market.”
Dave Orso, regional manager of APR’s Williamsport, Bloomsburg and Hazelton branches will be overseeing operations of the Johnson City location. Orso has been an employee of APR Supply for 14 years.
