F.W. Webb Celebrates 150 Years in Business
BEDFORD, MA The F.W. Webb Company has reached a major longevity milestone, marking its 150th anniversary. It began in Boston, Massachusetts, as Stults & Co., only a year after the Civil War ended, near what is now known as the Haymarket area near the popular tourist destination, Faneuil Hall.
As only one of two plumbing supply houses in the area in 1866, the F.W. Webb Co. was at the forefront of the burgeoning plumbing industry, which brought indoor plumbing and impelled sewage and waste water system upgrades to the most populous cities in America. From this single Boston location 15 decades ago, sprang a vitally significant industry and the largest, most diversified supplier of its kind in the Northeast.
Today, the F.W. Webb Company has over 2,000 employees in 80-plus locations across nine states. F.W. Webb has responded continually over the decades to its customers' needs by remaining at the forefront of industry and technological advances across its core businesses and in highly relevant specialty areas. F.W. Webb is a robust distributor across 15 distinct areas of expertise (details below) and is among the most respected, successful, privately-owned companies in the Northeast.
