Central Turf & Irrigation Supply acquires Irrigation Supply Inc.
Central Turf & Irrigation Supply acquired Irrigation Supply Inc., with two locations in Ohio; serving Columbus, Cleveland, and the surrounding areas.
The two newly remodeled Ohio locations will offer a more robust, full-service experience for local green industry professionals. The two locations will now have expanded hours and be open six days a week in season. In addition, customers will have access to more products and categories, the largest selection of in-stock inventory, hundreds of leading manufacturer brands, and services such as same day delivery, business and marketing resources, and category subject matter experts for onsite training and troubleshooting.
“The timing was right for Central to acquire Irrigation Supply, not just for the customers but for the industry,” said Bob Hobar on his decision to sell Irrigation Supply Inc. “The additional product and service offerings is a wonderful thing for our customers. Central will enable them to access everything they need for their businesses to be successful—products, training, and business resources. Central will be their partner for success. The future is bright for the Green Industry in the state of Ohio.”
Hobar and partners purchased Irrigation Supply in 2003 from founder David Vanderwist. Irrigation Supply Inc. has a reputation for service excellence and has served the irrigation contractor in Cleveland and Columbus areas for more than 40 years carrying professional products in irrigation, lighting, and fountains/water gardens.
“As a family owned and operated business, Central believes in strong partnerships to help our customers grow and be successful. That’s why we’re so excited to be able to serve and support new and existing customers in Ohio with solutions across irrigation, landscape, lighting, hardscape, and more,” said Bernardo Luciano, president of Central Turf & Irrigation Supply.
