In the fall of 1982 Larry Warnalis, a former executive in the hose and rubber products industry, fulfilled his dream to start a family business. That dream came to life in a small office and warehouse in Norfolk, Virginia, primarily selling to hose distributors in the mid-Atlantic states. Over time, Warnco expanded its sales territory to include the entire country, moved its headquarters to Central Virginia, and into a new warehouse on property once owned by Thomas Jefferson. Not bad for the son of an immigrant coal miner in Pennsylvania.
With Larry’s passing in 2000, his son Mike Warnalis, as president, oversees the regular challenges of running this service-oriented small business. And working with Mike are Ron Felscher as Operations Manager, Sherri Moyer as Office and Accounting Manager, and Andy Ellison as Warehouse Manager. And over the past 40 years, Warnco continues to supply products to industrial and specialty distributors, manufacturers, municipalities, and the military, among others.
Products sold include flexible fasteners, pole and sign banding materials, hose clamps of all types, stainless and nylon cable ties, silicone hose and hydraulic swivels. Warnco sells Snaplock Quick Release Clamps for Seasonal Pole Decorations, HVAC, Filtration, and bundling electric cables on our country’s aircraft carriers.
Little did Larry realize back in 1982, that Warnco would continue to be such a successful and service-oriented company in the year 2022. Warnco, now in its 40th year, has survived recessions, a pandemic, six presidents, and is fiscally healthy. And we are ready to serve YOU with your industrial needs..
