Fortiline Opens Branch in Helotes, TX

Helotes, TX – (January 19, 2017) – Fortiline Waterworks (Fortiline), one of the largest waterworks distributors in the United States, is now open in Helotes, TX, replacing Morrison Supply Company’s waterworks branch at 10850 Leslie Road, Helotes, TX 78023. With this new branch, Fortiline now has 45 distribution branches in 12 states.

“We have plans to expand in a number of areas this calendar year, including further expansion into Texas beyond the opening of the Helotes branch,” said Mike Swedick, Fortiline President and CEO. “As the economy continues to grow, Fortiline is poised to take advantage of more opportunities to increase our market reach.”

Fortiline, the second-largest wholesale distributor of underground water, sewer and storm utility products in the United States, was acquired by MORSCO, a Fort Worth-based distributor of commercial and residential plumbing products, heating and cooling equipment (HVAC), and pipe, valves and fittings (PVF) on October 31, 2016. The acquisition provides MORSCO’s vendors and customers with greater opportunities, specifically through Morrison Supply Company’s waterworks branches transitioning to Fortiline stores to leverage Fortiline’s vendor and customer relationships.
