Hisco — a leader in fast, friendly service for 50 years; working hard to lead for the next 50!

It all began with a single dollar bill...

In 1970, Hisco founder Paul Merriman purchased a then-failing company for just $1 in pursuit of a dream. He moved his family to Houston, Texas to rescue the company we all know as Hisco – and so began our road to success. Today, our international branch network includes more than 30 stocking locations with 2019 revenue of more than $330 million.

It’s more than just the amazing story of our past that has led us here today. As we honor our corporate legacy and our 50th anniversary, we also recognize our loyal customers and your role in our continued success. As we celebrate the past, we continue to honor our tradition of service and commitment while adapting to new technologies and your evolving needs. Let’s work together toward an even brighter future ahead.

"Drink the water, but never forget those who dug the well."
