About Us:​​​​​

Philadelphia Reserve Supply Company (PRSCO) is a purchasing cooperative owned by building material dealers throughout the Mid-Atlantic.


PRSCO facilitates direct order shipments from various suppliers and operates a 72,000 square foot distribution warehouse. Our warehouse inventory includes drywall, insulation, treated lumber, plywood, and many other products used in new construction and remodeling.
 

What is a Reserve Supply?:

A Reserve Supply Company is wholly and equally owned by a group of common stockholders. It functions as a wholesale distributor and maintains a central warehouse, which is one of the major differences between a Buying Group and a Reserve Supply Company. A stockholder of a Reserve Supply can earn dividends on their common stock when they purchase from the Reserve.

History:

PRSCO was founded in 1930 by a group of Philadelphia Area building material dealers. Their mission was to pool their purchasing power so they could acquire products at a lower cost and distribute them in smaller quantities amongst its members. All net profits were rebated back to each member in the form of a patronage dividend. PRSCO still operates that way
to this day!

 

Mission:

The mission of PRSCO is to provide our members:
• Collective purchasing power
• Dedicated warehouse distribution
• Quality value-added programs and services
• Year-end patronage dividend and guaranteed rebates
• Rebate and fee transparency
