Our Story

On June 1, 1973, Gladston Mealor and his son, Sidney Mealor, established Plumbing Distributors, Inc at 166 Buford Drive in Lawrenceville. Four employees, including Glad and Sid, manned the small business which offered counter sales and delivery.

On February 13, 1976, PDI became a distributor of American Standard. This was a significant boost for PDI. The American Standard line enabled the company to prove itself as a competitive force in the plumbing industry. This helped PDI secure other major plumbing lines such as A.O Smith water heaters and later Aqua Glass bath fixtures.

As PDI continued to grow, the need for a larger facility became evident. The company wanted to stay close to its roots in the Lawrenceville area. A piece of property was obtained in an undeveloped industrial park off Collins Hill Road that had easy access to Georgia Highway 316. From 1984 to 2006, PDI's Corporate Headquarters were located at 20 Collins Hill Road, but once again, to meet the need for growth and expansion, PDI needed to move. On January 16, 2006, PDI relocated to its new and current location at 1025 Old Norcross Road in Lawrenceville. With 137,000 square feet, the building allows plenty of room for continued expansion.

As their customer base expanded, PDI knew they must expand with new branches to keep their customer service top-notch.

Always seeking opportunities to improve their business, PDI joined the Kohler distribution team in 1989. With the name recognition and the broadness of their line, Kohler enabled PDI to offer a more complete plumbing package to their customers. Another beneficial addition to their product selection was Rheem Water Heaters in 1993. PDI is committed to providing quality products to their customers.

PDI's customers include a large variety of local businesses from independent plumbers, developers, mechanical contractors and individual homeowners. In short, they are firmly established and involved with the growth and continued success of the metro-Atlanta community.
