Core & Main Expands Into West Texas With Acquisition of Triple T Pipe & Supply

ST. LOUIS, Mar. 1, 2021—Core & Main LP, a leading U.S. distributor of water, sewer and fire protection products, reports it has closed on its previously announced agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Triple T Pipe & Supply, LLC, of Lubbock, Texas. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Triple T has an amazing team of dedicated people who consistently put their customers first,” said Jack Schaller, president of Core & Main Waterworks. “We welcome them into the Core & Main family and are excited to see what we will accomplish together.”

The team from Triple T will continue to be based in Lubbock, and will move into a new, larger facility to enhance their support of their existing and new customers in West Texas. Core & Main also has locations in El Paso and San Angelo to serve its customer base in West Texas.

“Our combined team will bring a level of excellence in service to West Texas that we could not have accomplished separately. I am excited for our new associates and for our waterworks customers alike,” said Chuck Zappola, regional vice president of Core & Main. “West Texas offers us a big horizon and we are here to deliver.”

This acquisition is Core & Main’s 12th since becoming an independent company in 2017.
