About Us

W.J. “Bill” Hayes, Jr. and William J. “Jenks” Hayes, III co-founded the Company in June, 1973. Mr. Bill Hayes brought 20-plus years experience from Johns-Manville Pipe Division. The father & son team took great pride in progressing from the “kitchen table” office to a strong regional supply house, now with ten locations. Jenks Hayes became President and CEO in July, 1974 and remains in this role today. Mr. Bill Hayes retired in 1991 and passed away in August, 2004, but his values and genuine nature continue to provide a great foundation for those who have followed.
