What’s in a Name? Why Are We Called Core & Main?
When we formed our company, we went to our best resource, our associates, to find a name for our organization. Associate Quinton Carter’s submission spoke to our DNA. As he explains it, “Core comes from our core values, and main not just for main water lines, but for being the main supplier — people want to come to us rather than our competitors.” We serve our communities, so where we live is at the corner of Core & Main.
