Plumbing and Heating Wholesale was founded in 1979 in Sioux Center, Iowa by Lee and Jerry Plasier. Since that time, PHW has grown to be an independent Plumbing, HVAC and PVF distributor with 8 distribution locations in Iowa and South Dakota. PHW also operates a plumbing, lighting and cabinetry showroom in Sioux City under the name Central Kitchen Bath.

PHW said he runs on the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) model, which allows every team member in the company to have a voice and opportunity to contribute to the greater good of the company.

In a statement, the management and stockholders of Wigman company said they rejected many offers for the company in the past due to what it considered to be an unsustainable situation. Wigman said it appreciates the opportunity to be a part of a company with larger economies of scale and a "fine management team dedicated to the continuance & expansion of the enterprise."

"Countless numbers of patrons have graced the company over the last 106 years, as well as the generations of dedicated employees that have served the company and its customers," Wigman said in a statement. "The company has every intent to continue to serve our customers with the inventory commitment & product knowledge its valuable patrons have come to expect and deserve."

In that time warehouses have been opened in Sioux Center, Carroll, Sioux City and Spencer, Iowa as well as Sioux Falls and Rapid City, and Aberdeen, South Dakota. The range and depth of products in inventory has grown dramatically in those years. A continuing strategy of stocking and selling brands that are known and trusted by the trades continues to guide the growth and configuration of the inventory.
