Concord, N.C. – (January 25, 2017) – Fortiline Waterworks (Fortiline), one of the largest waterworks distributors in the United States, announced today it has opened a new location in Winter Garden, Florida. With this new branch, Fortiline now has 46 distribution branches in 12 states.
The Winter Garden facility, at 822 Mary’s Park Place, Winter Garden, FL 34787, is open and ready to assist local customers.
“Our Winter Garden branch will support customers between our Orlando and Tampa branches,” said Ben Cagle, VP of Operations for Fortiline. “This new location will allow us to be more responsive to these customers and provides greater coverage for Fortiline in this growing area.”
In December, Fortiline opened a branch in Daytona Beach, Florida. The company now operates 10 branches in the state.
“Florida’s population is growing rapidly and investments in infrastructure are growing equally to meet the increased demands,” said Keith Young, Regional Manager for Fortiline’s operations in Florida. “With 10 branches in the state, Fortiline is positioned to provide complete solutions for the increasing number of infrastructure projects in the municipal, storm water, treatment plant and HDPE fusion arenas.”
In October, 2016, Fortiline was acquired by MORSCO, Inc., a Fort Worth-based distributor of commercial and residential plumbing products, heating and cooling equipment (HVAC), and pipe, valves and fittings (PVF).
“Fortiline will continue to look for opportunities to grow not only in Florida, but across the United States,” said Mike Swedick, President and CEO of Fortiline. “We will make several additional growth announcements over the next few months, as we look to leverage our partnership with MORSCO and expand our reach into new and existing Fortiline markets.”
