West Chester, PA – February 2024

Rick Lubker, President of Lubker Distribution, has announced the purchase of all remaining corporate stock, becoming the sole Owner of Lubker Distribution.

Since its inception in September 2001, Lubker Distribution, a Carrlu Company has been owned and operated as a partnership between Rick Lubker and Jim Carrigan. The twenty-three years together produced a multitude of positive operational and sales changes resulting in consistent year-on-year growth.  The company has become a trusted quality supplier to leading OEM’s and service companies located throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

In late 2023, Jim announced his intent to retire. He provided ample notice and support of task reassignment and maintained that the ultimate ‘date’ would coincide with corporate readiness. The goal at retirement remained the same for Jim as it did on day one, to ensure the ultimate success of the company.

Following significant restructuring that included new personnel hires, and existing personnel reassignments and promotions, the company proved its readiness in early 2024. The transactional necessities proceeded smoothly; the ownership change commencing February 2024.

In concert with the change, the corporate name has been updated to reflect current ownership, now known solely as Lubker Distribution, Inc.

Lubker Distribution is a supplier of fasteners and related products, specializing in WIN Systems Vendor Managed Inventory supply programs. Lubker Distribution is committed to best-in-class customer service and on-time delivery and has ensured a seamless transition of customer accounts and sales leadership to Vice President of Sales Steve Gillmor.
