Ferguson is the largest distributor of commercial and residential plumbing supplies, and pipe, valves, and fittings (PVF) in the United States. It’s more than a slogan about how Ferguson does business. Expecting a lot from themselves is how they make a positive impact to strengthen the communities where they are located throughout the country.. It’s a challenge they share with more than 20,000 associates who help Ferguson fulfill its mission by lending a hand where it’s needed. Supporting communities, families, the military and education is not that different from what they do every day – providing what it takes to keep a wide range of good things going, making everyone’s lives better.
