About Milford Supply

A Foundation of Family

Tom Milford Sr. left Grinnell Corporation in the spring of 1969 to form Milford Plumbing Supply Company Inc. with brother-in-law, Bob Allan. Other original investors include his mother Marguerite (Gammy), the Lucky Seven Group and others. During the early years, the company was located at 3940 Sullivan Avenue, in the shadows of old Sportsman Park in North Saint Louis. In June of 1969, the company began to deliver soil pipe, copper pipe and American Standard fixtures. At that time, Tom and Jean were required to pledge their home in order to receive credit from American Standard.

After a few years on Sullivan Avenue, Tom’s younger brothers Doug and HC convinced him to relocate Milford Supply to South County, and he joined them on Lin-Valle Drive in Saint Louis County in the mid 1970’s. After several years of sharing the facility, Tom’s younger brothers sold their business and Milford Supply took over the entire facility.

Late is 1977, Tom’s sons John and Tom Jr. joined the organization full time, and it wasn’t too long before the company installed its first computer system, circa 1980. Son Tim and daughter Donna also came aboard in the early 80’s. This foundation of family allowed the company added two locations over the years, first in Saint Charles and later in Fenton, Missouri.

Tom Senior’s vision was to create the best customer-driven supply house in the area, focusing on personal relationships and excellent service. His spirit lives on through today’s dedicated employees.
