FIRST SUPPLY DUBUQUE
FIRST SUPPLY DUBUQUE. In August of 1997 the La Crosse Plumbing Supply Companies became First Supply Group. Each location has retained its own identity, but now all operate under the corporate umbrella name of First Supply Group.
In 1998, Kretschmer-Tredway in Dubuque, Iowa was purchased. Renamed First Supply Dubuque, it became the first Iowa facility for the corporation. The successful facility continued to grow and in March 2007 relocated to its current location on Chavenelle Drive.
