Joseph Murphy Wholesale was founded in 1916 by Mr Joe Murphy. It started as a family business in a small premises in Lord Edward Street Ballina serving North and West Connacht with the supply of Domestic Hardware, Ironmongery and Groceries. Its ethos was to supply quality products at competitive prices to the customers.
The business continued to expand and in the 1950’s the company opened a Hardware Wholesalers divisions. In the 1970’s under the second generation of the Murphy family ownership it expanded its territory and product lines, setting up it’s own distribution service.
The late 1990’s saw a major development, with Sean Lavelle coming on board to be the majority shareholder. This brought major redevelopment which included relocating the business to a purpose-built 40,000sqft warehouse. Which brings us to today, with two Lavelle family members being part of the management team, continuing the family ethos of the business.
