Showrooms had become such an integral part of First Supply’s business model that in 1987 the decision was made to give the showrooms their own separate brand identity. They are named after Gerhard Poehling, who headed the company from 1940 until his retirement in 1980.

First Supply: No business like show(room) business!

Through Gerhard’s, its growing chain of kitchen and bath showrooms, First Supply is helping contractors satisfy their clients and homeowners realize their dreams.

For a professional plumbing contractor the supply house is the last place you want to take a homeowner in the middle of a kitchen or bathroom remodel. Yes, the supply house has a wide assortment of faucets, showerheads, bathtubs, etc., but it’s all in packaging. None of it looks the way you know it will when it’s installed.
