Concord, N.C. – (January 13, 2017) – Fortiline Waterworks (Fortiline), the second-largest American-owned waterworks distributor in the United States, is proud to announce its twentieth year as the preferred and most trusted wholesale distributor of underground water, sewer and storm utility products in the United States.
Fortiline was incorporated in August, 1997 as Mainline Supply Company, operating one branch in Asheville, North Carolina with a handful of employees. Today Fortiline has grown into a world-class leader in the waterworks distribution industry, with nearly 50 branches and 600 employees across the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest United States.
“Since Fortiline was formed in 1997, our goal has remained the same: to supply customers with quality products by reputable manufacturers at the most competitive prices,” said Mike Swedick, Fortiline President and CEO.
“For nearly two decades we’ve provided an unmatched level of service to a wide range of customers. That commitment to service has helped us achieve the level of growth that we have experienced. We look forward to celebrating our growth and this special company milestone with our customers, vendors and employees all year long.”
Fortiline has no plans to stop growing. In October, 2016 Fortiline was acquired by MORSCO, a leading U.S. distributor of commercial and residential plumbing, waterworks and HVAC. This relationship will allow Fortiline to continue expanding its presence in existing markets, while looking to enter new markets throughout the United States.
