Walker Supply and Turf Trade have announced the consummation of a deal for Walker Supply to acquire the Pennsylvania assets and locations formerly of Turf Trade.  All former Turf Trade employees working in Pennsylvania are now Walker Supply employees, with customer relationships continuing as before.

By adding the Lancaster, Norristown, and Pittston facilities to Walker Supply’s Pittsburgh Distribution Center, their locations are in Pennsylvania’s highest population centers. This addition extends Walker Supply’s footprint to cover all of Pennsylvania, northern and eastern parts of Ohio, West Virginia, western Maryland and western New York.

“As Walker Supply is celebrating its 26th year in business supporting the Turf and Ornamental Industry, this is a great opportunity for us to continue to support the industry at the highest level and engage new customers,” Walker Supply COO Bob Windsheimer said.

Turf Trade President Alan Phillips said, “This is a great opportunity for both organizations.  Walker Supply, Inc. gains these great employees and locations, while allowing me to concentrate on New Jersey, Delaware, and part of Maryland.  It is a very exciting time.”
