A Virginia-based, wholesale plumbing, heating and air conditioning supply company expects to open a new office in Hagerstown on June 1, said a company spokeswoman.
Ferguson Enterprises Inc., based in Newport News, Va., will employ 12 people at the company's new site in the Hagerstown Business Park off of Burhans Boulevard, said spokeswoman Harriet Yeapanis.
The Hagerstown office will help Ferguson close a market gap between company offices in Frederick, Md., Westminster, Md., and Fairmont, W.Va., Yeapanis said. It also will give company officials the opportunity to expand into southern Pennsylvania.
The company will lease a 25,000-square-foot building at 955 Sweeney Drive from LeRoy Myers Jr., officials said. The building is being constructed by Myers Building Systems.
