Sanders Supply has evolved through a real family effort by owners - Bill, Charlotte, Ed, and Donna Sanders.

The Corporate Office located at 107 East Belding had humble beginnings in Hot Springs in 1978 as an independent plumbing company. But the story really begins long before that...

Sanders Supply has a long history in the trades dating back to 1929 when Ed B. Sanders opened an independent plumbing company. As the family grew, so did the business, evolving into Ed Sanders and Son Mechanical Contractors once Billy E. Sanders joined the company in the 1950s. In 1974, Ed retired and Bill took ownership. Bill spent many years in and out of wholesale houses, often still left looking for materials he needed. In 1978, Bill along with his wife Charlotte, decided it was time to open a supply house of their own and founded Sanders Plumbing Supply inc in Hot Springs. American Standard, Delta, Brizo, Moen, Elkay, and Aquarius were just a few of the well-known products that were offered. Bill and Charlotte's son, Ed R. Sanders, would join the company in 1986 after graduating from the University of Arkansas with a degree in accounting and receiving his CPA designation. This would begin the expansion of Sanders into multiple locations and branching out into HVAC offering International Comfort Products with a new Hot springs location. By 1996, Sanders Supply had opened 3 more locations across Arkansas in Russellville, Benton, and Fort Smith, as well as acquiring 2 more locations with the purchase of Consolidated Supply in Blytheville and Batesville. Growth continued over the next 15 years, adding branches in Harrison, North Little Rock and Springdale. During this time the Sanders family focused on relocating Benton to a larger facility, moving the Blytheville location to Jonesboro, Building a new location for the North Little Rock branch and remodeling the original Hot Springs branch to incorporate a plumbing, lighting and hardware showroom. The next 10 years brought a lot of excitement. Sanders Supply celebrated 40 years of business. The original plumbing supply store was relocated to a building with a state-of-the-art climate-controlled open shopping area. Sanders also opened its first branch outside of Arkansas with its new location in Stillwater Oklahoma. That was just the beginning, though. Through several acquisitions, of similar family-owned businesses, Sanders supply ended 2022 with locations in, Melbourne FL, Goodlettsville TN, Horn Lake MS, and two locations in Memphis TN. Bringing the total number of branches to 16.
