COMPANY HISTORY

IDEAL SUPPLY COMPANY was incorporated in the state of Nevada in 1953. The ownership was transferred to Charles C. “Red” Englert in 1981. Previously, Mr. Englert had been the owner of Universal Plumbing & Heating Company for over 30 years. His experience in the commercial mechanical contracting field was and still is reflected in the way IDEAL SUPPLY COMPANY does business.

Red acted as President & CEO of IDEAL SUPPLY from December 1981 until December 1993, when Brad Englert became President. Later in July 1996, upon the death of Charles C. Englert, Brad Englert became the owner and CEO.

Brad is a graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in Business Administration. He is a past President of the Pacific Southwest Distributors Association and a member of the Board of Directors for the American Supply Association. His 7 years working for Universal Plumbing & Heating on the contracting side of the industry helped instill in him the importance of having the right material, at the right place, at the right time.
