Schaedler Yesco Distribution, APR Supply Company and Industrial Piping Systems plan to expand the “3 Under 1 Roof” brand. The expansion will take place in the Scranton, Pa. area and is scheduled to be completed by the spring of this year.
APR will relocate its Scranton branch into the facility at 745 North Keyser Avenue that already houses Schaedler Yesco Distribution and Industrial Piping Systems.
Once this transition is complete, the three companies will have a total of 10 multi-distributor locations; four of those facilities house all three distributors, six house at least two of the distributors.
The companies say the 3-in-1 business model is, “the first of its kind in Pennsylvania and specifically in the wholesale industry.”
According to a company news release, the multi-distributor locations were started because, “Customers oftentimes make purchases from each of the three distributors already so now they can find a large assortment of material needed for projects in one convenient location…”
Schaedler Yesco, APR and Industrial Piping Systems opened their first multi-distributor facility in the fall of 2006.Tagged with tED
