Murray Supply was founded by Craig V. Murray and his oldest son, Walt in 1965. CV, as he was familiarly known, began his almost 40 year career at Atlas Supply Company in 1926, where he ultimately served in a number of roles including Executive Vice President. In 1963 he left Atlas Supply and contemplated an early retirement, but was driven instead to open a commercial plumbing supply business of his own.  They named the business Murray Supply Company and in 1965 opened the first branch in Charlotte, North Carolina. Since then, Murray Supply Company has grown to six branches and one showroom spread strategically throughout North Carolina. Today, the company is run by third generation family members Charlie Murray, CEO, and his brother David Murray, who serves as the President. 

In the early years, Murray Supply Company thrived in Charlotte, N.C. due to the growing building and construction market coupled with a shared commitment of hard work and determination from the sales associates. Demand for plumbing supplies and industrial material was on the rise and Murray Supply responded to the needs of the growing city. 

Five years after its founding, Murray Supply moved their headquarters to Winston-Salem, N.C. The facility opened in 1970 with a new warehouse, multiple offices and a showroom. Murray Supply Company earned a reputation of superior customer service, complete with strong vendor relationships in the industry. In 1984, the company acquired Moore Supply in Raleigh and the branch has grown to become one of the major supply houses for commercial plumbing and piping products products in the Triangle area. A fourth branch serving the plumbing, piping and HVAC market was added in Hickory, NC in 2001. 

Seeing a new opportunity in the marketplace to serve a different customer base, the company started a Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) division servicing the multi-family housing industry. This division currently has two locations in Charlotte and Raleigh, NC, devoted exclusively to the MRO market. Customer service, attention to details and quality products have made Murray Supply one of the fastest growing companies in the Carolinas for MRO products. 

Today, Murray Supply Company is well positioned for future growth in a variety of geographic markets and a variety of industries. Our associates are some of the best trained and most experienced, customer focused associates in the industry.  We are truly One Source for Any Industry.
