F.W. Webb has been ranked #18 on Modern Distribution Management's 2011 Industrial Market Leaders list and #9 on the HVACR/Plumbing/PVF Market Leaders list. These lists identify the top 40 and top 10 distributors by revenue in industrial and HVACR/plumbing/PVF distribution, respectively. Modern Distribution Management is the leading information source for independent distribution channels.
"The top distributors continued to gain market share in 2011, many returning to sales levels seen before 2009. While there are still headwinds, distributors that appear on MDM's Market Leaders lists continue to execute a successful strategy to give them an edge in the recovery," said Tom Gale, publisher of Modern Distribution Management.
The list was released in conjunction with the 2011 MDM Distribution Landscape report. Taken together, the full report provides a comprehensive landscape of the distribution industry, including merger and acquisition news and market trends. It is available at www.mdm.com/marketleaders.
Data was collected from the companies, public filings and news releases.
