The time has come for David E. Berger and manufacturers representative DEBsco Sales out of Cheshire, Connecticut to hang up the hose bibbs.

David E. Berger will retire on Dec. 31 from the plumbing manufacturers representative business. After 25 years of representing PRIER, Berger is passing his position to Yost Associates, who he believes will do a great job.    

Based in Glastonbury, Connecticut, Yost Associates is a leading manufacturers representative firm whose mission is to provide the highest quality products and services toward their partners in the plumbing industry, PRIER noted. They have upheld this commitment since 1936 and continue to grow with businesses throughout the region, PRIER added.

“When researching agencies in the area, I heard from many wholesale distributors and engineers that said Yost Associates would be the best fit for PRIER,” stated Scott Livingston, regional sales manager. 

PRIER is impressed with the reputation and experience Yost brings to the table. Both principals, JP Lacey and Russ Smith, have a tremendous relationship with key decision-makers in the industry, PRIER noted. PRIER is excited for our future with Yost Associates and is looking forward to a successful partnership in 2019, the manufacturer added.
