For over a century, our spacious counters and showrooms in Western Michigan have served thousands with expert advice and friendly staff. In 2007, Richards Plumbing & Heating Supply became part of Hajoca Corporation. A privately owned American company founded in Philadelphia in 1858, Hajoca is named by combining the names of the founders, Haines, Jones, and Cadbury. Hajoca is the largest private wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating, industrial, waterworks, and pool supplies in the North America with approximately 350 locations in the US. We continue to service with the same small town values we have had for 100 years, while now enjoying the purchasing power and access to thousands of suppliers that being a larger company brings.
As a privately held decentralized company, we are not subject to the demands of Wall Street shareholders. We use our size to negotiate the lowest pricing on the best products from the best manufacturers, but we make our business decisions at the local level based on local market conditions. We set pricing locally, choose which brands and products to stock locally, and choose appropriate levels of inventory to stock locally. We rely on our customers to educate us on the needs of the market. If there is something you need that we do not stock, or if there is a price we need to compete with, please let us know. Most of the time, we can stock any item that you require or find a source to special order it quickly.
Richards Plumbing & Heating Supply operates under local a profit sharing model. You can be assured that the business you give us each day will personally impact our local employees and local economy. We have a vested interest in being the best supplier that we can be in order to earn as much of your business as we can. We need you to be successful in your business for us to be successful in ours. In order for us to grow as a company, we must grow with our customers.
