Company History

Thompson Supply Company is a family owned business that opened its Montgomery doors in 1957 by Malcolm Thompson and is one of the few left today that has not been overcome by larger companies or corporations. By 1962, Malcolm established Opelika Plumbing Supply and eventually dropped the trade name and became known as Thompson Supply Company. His oldest son, Phillip Thompson, started working in the business at the age of 17 and eventually the youngest son, Dennis, joined the company. They together purchased the business from their father in 1976, with Phillip as President and Dennis as Vice President. Dennis' untimely death in 2006 left Phillip to run the company and he still remains President today.
