APR Supply Co., a third-generation distributor of plumbing, HVAC, and hydronic supplies in the northeastern U.S., hosted its 20th annual buying show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in August. Prior to the show, APR continued its centennial celebration by recognizing some of its top partners.
Heil Heating and Cooling Products was named APR’s partner of the year. This award was presented by Zachary Derr, APR vice president of supply chain. “Heil is very deserving of winning our partner of the year award,” said Derr. “They have a fantastic team and have done a great job communicating with us about supply-chain challenges and opportunities. We continue to grow together.”
Allied Air Enterprises, a top HVAC manufacturer in North America, took innovator of the year, and Lixil, a housing equipment manufacturer, was presented with decorative brand partner of the year.
In the midst of buying-show season, APR was also recognized by the Central Penn Business Journal as the 17th-ranked company among the top 100 private companies in central Pennsylvania, up from 27th in 2021.
APR hosted a second buying show later in August in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. APR has 38 locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
