Star Wholesale Supply
25 Years in Business
Star Wholesale is a Supplier of Plumbing and Mechanical Pipe, valves and fittings, among a variety of other equipment.
In 1980, Star opened in Springdale, Arkansas, as Star Mechanical Supply. In 1995, they opened in Springfield under the name Star Wholesale Supply. In 1996, Star opened in Fort Smith, Arkansas, as Star Mechanical Supply, then expanded again to Joplin as Star Wholesale Supply in 2011.
Star began with three employees in Springfield, and has grown to approximately 40 employees, many having been employed over 15 years, some for the entire 25 years.
Star was not just a random name picked out for the company. STAR came from the last names of the original owners, which consisted of Hurshel Sale, John Taylor and Roy Rogers. It continues to be a locally and family-owned business!
Star Wholesale participates in the Spring and Fall Shoot out held at Ozark Shooters, the Annual Pig Roast, Golf Tournaments, and more.
