“We are proud to announce, Larry Hobbs, the retired owner and President of Carr Company, was officially inducted into the Association of Manufacturers’ Representatives (AIM/R) Hall of Fame.

Carr Company was founded over 70 years ago by George and Edith Carr to sell plumbing products. Their first line was Schaible Faucets, Edith’s father’s company. George and Edith had a passion for the industry and quickly grew the company as a result of hard work, solid relationships and the desire to be the best.
Since then, little has changed in our philosophy. Plumbing is our religion – our passion. We have four generations of industry experience and we still believe in the basics: hard work, relationships and the unquenching desire to be the best.
We strive to bring the most value to everyone in our channel: manufacturers, wholesalers, contractors, builders, engineers and architects.
