We have a long history of local service.
In 1972, Mel May founded May Supply as a local, independent, plumbing wholesaler located in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The company has undergone many changes over the years, but continues to stay true to its roots by focusing on quality products and the expertise of its staff.
In 1985, May Supply moved its operations to a seven-acre property located on Erickson Avenue in Harrisonburg. After Mel May retired in 1997, a new management team was put in place. Larry Fanella is president, Bill Shulz is chief operations officer and Mike Heatwole is sales manager. The second generation of Mays are still involved in the business.
Strong growth and wise business development is evident in the company’s expansion over the years. In 2002, May Supply added a Wastewater Division, and in 2005, the company built an expanded showroom and warehouse space. Also in 2005, May Supply added a wastewater service division, Onsite Wastewater Services. In 2007, May Supply opened a branch location in Ruckersville, Virginia, and in 2011, it acquired Ram Plumbing.
