You may not know that we are a privately owned American company founded in Philadelphia in 1858. The name HAJOCA, is the combination of the first two initials of the founders, Haines, Jones, and Cadbury. Hajoca is one of the largest private wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating, waterworks, industrial supplies and pool supplies, with approximately 400 locations in the U.S.
As a privately held decentralized company, we are not subject to the demands of Wall Street shareholders. We use our size to negotiate the lowest pricing on the best products from the best manufacturers, but we make our business decisions at the local level based on local market conditions. We set pricing locally, choose which brands and products to stock locally, and choose appropriate levels of inventory to stock locally. We rely on our customers to educate us on the needs of the market. If there is something you need that we do not stock, or if there is a price we need to compete with, please let us know. Most of the time, we can stock any item that you require or find a source to special order it.
We strive to be the best supplier in Iowa City and earn your business. Our goal is for you to be successful in your business, so we can be successful in ours. In order for us to grow as a company, we must grow with our customers.
