Our History

Slakey Brothers began in 1939 as a heating and sheet metal supply business, with $5000 and one warehouse. Over the next few years, the company added plumbing and air conditioning equipment, and the company steadily grew by attracting talented, dedicated employees and rewarding them appropriately.


Today, we have over 400 employees at 28 locations in California, Nevada and Oregon. Through all of the changes and growth, Slakey Brothers still operates by the values that have made us successful. Employees have a sense of pride and personal involvement in the company’s success, and we believe it is one of the main reasons we have maintained such a stable workforce for decades; many of our employees have worked for Slakey Brothers for over 20, 30, and even 40 years.


Slakey Brothers is among the highest ranked distributors of heating, plumbing and air conditioning products in the nation. We supply over 50,000 products to the construction industry, carrying top-of-the-line brands like Bryant, Amana, Kohler, and Delta. Slakey Brothers has gained its dominant position as a result of aggressive leadership, market penetration and advanced computer technology. In addition, the distinctive customer service provided by our experienced and knowledgeable employees has resulted in the company’s loyal and long-term customer relationships.
