It all started in 1974
Duffy Pastore has been involved in the Plumbing and Heating Supply industry since 1974. At the age of 18, he began as a truck driver for a New Jersey shore area supply house. As he worked his way up through the industry, and within the varying structures of small local and large multi-branch organizations, he observed aspects of this business that were handled well, and those that were not.
The wealth of experience gained through this exposure and interaction resulted in Duffy achieving many upper level and branch management positions with some of the premier supply houses in the New Jersey metro area. He was involved in all aspects of sales, management and operations. All along the way he continued to mentally catalogue what was right and what was wrong.
In 1999 he purchased Somerset Supply Company from the family that had owned it since 1921! As sole stockholder he is able to apply his vast experience for over 40 years to Somerset's strong reputable presence in the local community and marketplace. His education in business, economics and finance allowed for a solid foundation being put into place to support the growth and success of the 'new' Somerset Supply.
What stands today is a monument to the industry that Duffy loves. In an ever more challenging economic environment, Duffy and Somerset have assembled a stellar group of associates determined to exceed expectations every day! Customer understanding and service are at the core of what Somerset does well.
Duffy and his staff listen and do their best to suggest the proper products and materials to meet the needs and desires of an incredibly diverse group of individuals and organizations. Every day they have fun, contribute to the quality of life for customers and help support the community and economy.
