Ferguson Enterprises

 
Overview

Ferguson is a diverse wholesale distributor with operations spanning multiple business
groups. The company is ranked by trade publications as the largest distributor
of plumbing supplies and pipe, valves and fittings (PVF). It is also the third largest
distributor of heating and cooling equipment (HVAC/R) and the second largest
company within the waterworks industry.



In 1953, Ferguson was founded with $150,000 starting capital and two locations.
The next five decades saw phenomenal growth, with the company doubling in size
every five years. In 1982, Wolseley plc, listed on the London Stock Exchange
and based in the United Kingdom, acquired Ferguson, supplying the financial
strength for Ferguson's rapid growth and aggressive expansion into the industrial,
heating and cooling (HVAC) and waterworks markets.



Our company has a unique culture and a tradition of supporting civic, cultural,
educational and environmental activities. We are committed to the highest
standards of ethics, from helping our customers select green product solutions
to providing a safe and secure workplace environment.

Culture

Our associates are known for their energy, enthusiasm and great attitudes. The phrase "nobody expects more from us than we do" is a belief that our associates live every day. That level of care and concern for our customer's business isn't something that can be learned - it comes from the unique and dedicated individuals who form our Ferguson family.

Make no mistake, at Ferguson, we work hard. Being the best in the business is very demanding, no matter what business you're in. But we also play hard. Our associates develop many strong and lasting friendships with customers and their co-workers, and the sense of camaraderie at our branches is an important ingredient in our success.

Several other important elements add to our unique corporate culture. The way our company is organized in autonomous branches combines the advantages of a small business and a large corporation, resulting in the best of both worlds. Advancement is based on merit, and the company provides great professional growth and advancement opportunity for each associate.

Our associates are also committed to giving back to the local communities in which we do business and they form strong and lasting bonds with fellow associates and customers.

It all adds up to a work environment that is rewarding in every sense of the word.
