Apropos of the company’s start, an ice toilet was a feature at the store opening. As part of a manufacturing company in the plastic injection moulding business, the Mantia family was the first to launch an inexpensive plastic toilet handle model.

Plumbers Supply recently moved into its new store environment in Pickering, ON. The facility, which is four times as large as the old space in nearby Ajax,  is located at 900 Brock Road, three blocks south of Highway 401 on the west side of Brock Road.  The showroom features over 3,000 square feet of display space – providing designers and homeowners an environment to select and test products for their projects.

Coinciding with the move, the company is stocking more materials for HVAC and air quality technicians; launching more products on-line with current vendors in North America and World-wide; and expanding its representative and distribution arm by launching new and innovative products in the North American market.

Background

1960s and 1970s:  as part of a thriving manufacturing company in the plastic injection moulding business, the Mantia family was the first to launch an inexpensive plastic toilet handle model that worked just as well at a fraction of the cost – to huge success.

1980s:  the company’s long standing relationship with toilet manufacturers in North and South America opened a new door for Plumbers Supply to be born as the first Canadian distribution arm for numerous toilet brand repair parts and plumbing equipment. With the advent of on-line selling the company followed suit launching www.PlumbersSupply.ca.

1990s:  The downturn in the economy and increase in offshore manufacturing only steeled Plumbers Supply’s resolve to become bigger in a new niche market – on-line sales and distribution of plumbing repair parts – North America Wide.

2000s:  As the demand for repair parts grew, Plumbers Supply the “walk-in store” was created; along with the private label repair parts brand “JAG Plumbing Products”

Since it moved into the online market, the company now distributes products to addresses from the Arctic Circle to the Mexican Border.
