Mueller Industries lends post-hurricane hand to Blackman Plumbing Supply Blackman Plumbing Supply Co. Received emergency supplies from Mueller Industries in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Mueller’s Greg Christopher spearheaded the initiative along with Jeff Harris, who acted on a local level. Mueller’s John Parker and Chris Pyle drove 19 consecutive hours from Memphis to Blackman’s Mahwah, N.J., branch to lend assistance. “Mueller’s goodwill gesture was truly remarkable. The New York metropolitan area was devastated by Hurricane Sandy and the resources supplied by Mueller were ones desperately needed,” Blackman Plumbing Supply President and CEO Robert Mannheimer said. “The generators provided were able to help restore power to two of our branches, which allowed us to get emergency equipment into the hands of contractors who in turn worked to pump people’s basements out, get their heat back on and provide hot water to those in need. I’d like to extend my most sincere gratitude to all the people at Mueller who helped make this act of kindness possible. Your efforts will help us get through this crisis.” Murray Supply volunteers for Ronald McDonald House A group of sales associates from North Carolina-based Murray Supply’s Maintenance Repair and Operations branch helped Ronald McDonald House raise $122,000 during a recent fundraising event.
