A Company You Can Trust


Our company has grown tremendously since our family joined the plumbing-supply business in 1938. Southern Pipe is now one of the largest privately held, independent distributors of brand name plumbing, heating, air-conditioning (HVAC), industrial, mechanical, and water works supplies in the Southeast. With over 90 locations in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Arkansas, Florida and Tennessee, we have the products & reach to grow your business.

“We’re now on our fourth generation of family ownership, still building our business on a firm foundation of integrity, commitment and trust.”

At Southern Pipe, we serve professionals and homeowners across the Southeast with the very best in brand name plumbing, heating & air-conditioning (HVAC), water works, industrial and electrical supplies. Southern Pipe is proud of its wide customer base, ranging from the smallest plumbing operation, to multi-crew industrial contractors, to city water works, and to homeowners looking to remodel that kitchen or bathroom. Our family members—what we call our employees—are available to help you on your next project no matter the size—anytime & anywhere. We’re headquartered in Meridian, Mississippi, where our founder, Louis Davidson, began his pursuit of the American dream as a 20-year-old Russian immigrant in 1901. Our 4th generation of family has taken the helm, and we are still building our business on a firm foundation of integrity, commitment and trust.

Southern Pipe’s Central Distribution Center supports our 100+ branches with a constantly turning multimillion-dollar inventory. Though our CDC averages over 70,000 transactions per month, it boasts an error rate of less than 1% on orders shipped to the branches. On top of this, we’ve worked with our customers to designate more than 900 products as critical-service items – essential products and equipment that customers need every day. On orders for these crucial items, our CDC has achieved a near perfect “fill rate” of 99.7 percent. For the consumer, our Southern Bath & Kitchen designer showrooms amount to a homeowner’s theme park. We have dozens of locations throughout Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Arkansas, Florida and Tennessee. Our experts will spend all the time you need to make sure you get the perfect premium cabinetry, countertops, appliances, showers, tubs, faucets and sinks. Whether you are a contractor working on a big building project or a homeowner planning your dream kitchen, Southern Pipe can show you what it’s like to experience intimate customer service. To us, you’re part of the family.
