Eastern Pennsylvania Supply Company has an extensive history in the Wilkes-Barre area. Established in 1889, Eastern Penn has evolved over the years from a supplier to anthracite mines to a wholesaler of Plumbing, HVAC, & Electrical products. Although the same family has owned and operated Eastern Penn over those 124 years, currently 66% of management are not Conynghams. The firm believes merit, not DNA, should control all aspects of employment. The company posted this policy in 1890; “A commission is always reserved for the professional”. While it is no longer 25%, quite often has trouble reaching 8%, professional commissions are still in effect. In fact, the 1923 version of this policy is still current, and still hanging in the VP of Sales office. Many of their customers are 3rd generation professionals dealing with 3rd gen Eastern Penn folks. The average employee is here 15 years, and the company is large enough & diverse enough to ride different tides at different times, while still being small enough for all employees to know each other.
