F.W. Webb Co., a plumbing and heating distributor headquartered in Bedford, said it will open a new 50,000-square-foot wholesale supply store and retail bath showroom in Boston, its first within city limits.
The store, near Interstate 93 at 307 Dorchester Ave., should be fully operational by the end of the year, said the company, which has renovated an old warehouse with a green redesign that limits its carbon footprint. The redesign includes an array of solar panels on the roof and a geothermal unit for its heating and cooling needs.
The store will cater to both professionals and consumers, F.W. Webb said in a press release. Plans call for the wholesale supply store to open Nov. 21, and for the Frank Webb’s Bath Center to open by the end of the year.
The company operates more than 30 showrooms in New England and New York.
