In 1953, Ferguson was founded with $150,000 starting capital and two locations. The next five decades saw phenomenal growth, with the company doubling in size every five years. In 1982, Wolseley plc, listed on the London Stock Exchange and based in the United Kingdom, acquired Ferguson, supplying the financial strength for Ferguson’s rapid growth and aggressive expansion into the industrial, heating and cooling (HVAC) and waterworks markets. It’s Ferguson’s associates who make the difference. Ferguson employs 19,000 associates.
