The Knoxville, Tenn.-based House-Hasson Hardware Company, which distributes to hardware stores, home centers and lumberyards domestically and internationally, has acquired the consumer products division of the Prichard, W.Va.-based Persinger Supply Company.
Don Hasson, president of House-Hasson, said the acquisition will help House-Hasson further expand its services to home improvement retailers in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
"Persinger Supply's key employees will remain and will operate through House-Hasson Hardware's new Persinger Division," Hasson said, adding that House-Hasson will mirror the company's inventory and services in Persinger's West Virginia distribution center, which will serve as a satellite distribution center for House-Hasson through the new division.

"The best part of the new division is the excellent staff of people," Hasson said. "Vernice Deskins and Beverly Perry, who have both been with Persinger Supply for many years and are well-respected in the industry, will continue to manage day-to-day operations of the Persinger division."
