New York Plumbing Supply is ..., 13 May 2014 [cached]
New York Plumbing Supply is the creation of Derek Price, a third-generation business owner with more than two decades of industry experience. Price, the company's president and CEO, worked for Bayport, N.Y.-based Blackman Plumbing Supply for 15 years, starting in 1989 in the warehouse. He later moved to the counter before eventually shifting to sales and then up to branch manager (he managed a Blackman branch for five years).
Price retired from Blackman in 2004 to enter the ministry where he's currently the pastor at Long Island-based Bethel Christian Church. He started a small business in 2008 and from there purchased NY Plumbing Supply on New Year's Eve 2008.
"Teaming up with Derek was a no-brainer.
"Derek started out being an over-the-counter supply house catering to jobbing/repair and alteration-type customers. The company has a broader initiative today - using its relationships with the bigger contractors to increase market share."
Price and NYPS have been aided in recent times by the company's Minority Business Enterprises status. Price explains both New York City and New York state have minority participation goals that require construction companies and subcontractors to set aside a certain percentage of the job and engage in business with a Minority/Women-Owned Certified Business.
"When a contractor is awarded a job that has minority goals, the city and state want to know how that company is going to fulfill those requirements," Price says. "Most of them fulfill it by purchasing supplies/materials from a M/WBE supply house."
Price admits he was unsure how helpful the MBE status would be to his company. "I had no idea how important it would be," he says.
Putting minority certification aside, Price asks the question, "Why would the big guys want to deal with a small company like us? He has plenty of ammunition in which to deliver the answer.
For starters, Price leans on the more than half-century of industry experience he and O'Connor bring to the table. "When you have been around the industry for as long as we have, you kind of know the good and the bad parts," he says.
Price adds, "This industry has a substantial amount of work, but margins are very tight and you have to be competitive."
NYPS has strong relationships with all facets of the supply chain, including manufacturers, manufacturers reps and other supply houses. "We buy direct from manufacturers, but we also realize the tremendous value in aligning ourselves with the other stocking distributors/wholesalers and manufacturers' reps in this region," Price says.
Those relationships, Price explains, have taken the company far in a short amount of time. "This is a relationship-driven industry," he says. "We rely on those relationships to help us grow."
Price also is building long-lasting relationships in his local community. "Relationships are the bedrock of any strong community and my relationship with God, family and community is important to me," he says.
In terms of the current and future state of the distribution business, Price says business in the New York City area of late has been brisk and the city is in the midst of an energy-management boom. "The city came out of the recession last year," he notes.

Pastor Derek Price
Pastor Derek Price was born in the Bronx, on June 19. At the age of 8 years old their family relocated from the Bronx to Hempstead Long Island. At the age of 17 on October 16th, 1982 a wonderful experience changed his life forever.
Pastor Price gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ and was baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost. At the age of 19 he married his childhood sweetheart First Lady Jean Price and from this relationship were born La'Toya, De'Briel and Jasmine.
So much more could be said about Pastor Price but one thing is for sure he doesn't like a lot of attention. If history were to record his life let it be short and simple. He loved God and his people to the end.
Minister Jean Price is the First Lady of Bethel Christian Church and has been married to Pastor Derek Price for 22 years.
Minister Price has awakened the awareness of revealing the secrecy of sexual and emotional abuse in and out of the church. The transparency of her ministry has compelled many women to come forth so that they can be healed.
She has been asked by various women groups, universities, woman's prisons and conferences nationally and internationally to come and deliver the word of God. The New York State Pentecostal Assembly of the World Organization has also recognized the anointing and the assignment upon her life and has given her access to address issues that affect women.
From her ministry for Women the "Healing Women Win" annual conference was born and the "Healing Women Win Talk Show" which airs on her local television Network Station. She is also the president and founder of "Beginning-A-New Community Development Corporation" a shelter for battered and abused women.
