Ferguson opens new Tennessee showroom
Ferguson, one of the leading plumbing and HVAC distributors in North America, has announced the opening of a new branch in Jackson, Tenn. The 4,500-square-foot showroom will sell plumbing fixtures, lighting and appliances.
Ferguson’s parent company, U.K.-based Wolseley, recently announced that it reduced Ferguson’s headcount by 1,110 workers and closed 50 branches during the past quarter, which ended on Oct. 31, 2008. These actions were taken in preparation for expected declines in commercial and industrial construction in the early 2009, the company said.
