Blackman Plumbing Supply goes live with upgrades

Blackman Plumbing Supply Inc.

HOUSTON — Blackman Plumbing Supply Inc., a Mincron customer since 1988, recently upgraded and went live on version 12.1 of their core ERP system along with version 2.0 of their StockSmart automated warehouse management system. Blackman is planning to implement several more of our business solutions in the near future.

Headquartered in Bayport, N.Y., where they operate a 250,000-square-foot Distribution Center, Blackman Plumbing Supply has 22 fully stocked branches and showrooms in New York and New Jersey that serve the greater NYC metropolitan area. The company distributes plumbing, industrial, waterworks, tools, HVAC and outdoor living products and supplies. In 2016, Blackman entered the Florida market with a 9,000-square-foot showroom in West Palm Beach that features plumbing, tile, lighting and stone.

Blackman’s history dates back to 1921 when Sam Blackman opened a small plumbing supply company in Brooklyn. Among the company’s key historical highlights:

  • Opened their first branch in 1940 in Flushing, N.Y.

  • Entered the HVAC market in 1995.

  • Named Robert Mannheimer the President, CEO and Chairman in 2012 following the death of Richard Blackman, son of the founder.

  • Signed an historic contract in 2014 making Blackman one of the only stocking distributors of the three major plumbing lines — Kohler, American Standard and Toto.
