Empire Pipe and Supply goes live on Mincron business software

Empire Pipe & Supply

June 13, 2017 — Houston — Over the weekend, Empire Pipe & Supply completed their successful implementation and went live with an on-premise Mincron distribution management software solution. Thanks to the dedicated team at Mincron, and the effort put in by everyone at Empire Pipe & Supply, the implementation was turned around in just five months.

Several Empire employees who had previously worked for another of our customers were instrumental in the reason their company chose a Mincron solution. As Director of Operations Jonathan Lindle described, “They were already familiar with the benefits that the SmartDistributor solution provides, namely its streamlined order processing and its leading inventory management and job management capabilities.”

Empire Pipe & Supply is headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., and has a branch location near Tallahassee, Fla. Founded in 1972, the waterworks distributor has built an outstanding reputation among contractors and municipalities in the Southeastern U.S. Among their broad range of products are materials involved for underground utility work, including steel casing; water meters; ductile iron pipe; and valves and hydrants.

“If it matters to you, it matters to us.”
