History of Ideal Supply

Founded in 1930, Ideal Supply Co. started primarily as a plumbing distributor of pipe, valves, fittings and related products in the New York / New Jersey Metropolitan Area. Our focus from the beginning has been to get the customers what they want, when they need it and at a competitive price.

In 1991 when our current president, Donald A. Strittmatter, took over he insisted on the same values as our founder. Now in 2016 our customers expect us to have what they are searching for in stock and available for delivery when they need the material on the jobsite.

Our warehouses and our fleet of trucks are on the road servicing our customers with a smile, but more importantly with the pipe, valves and fittings they are waiting on to complete the job.
