Founded in 1962 by Bill Lowe, WPVS had a primary focus on distributing products to the cattle, swine and poultry industries. Bill’s sons Mike and Greg continued to operate the West Plains Missouri location until 2018 when the distributorship was purchased by John and Dixie Williams and Larry and Betty Hirsch.
Their vision has always been and continues to be, flexible enough to provide high quality products and services that are important to helping our customers be successful. Being animal lovers, WPVS decided to offer pet health products in 1990. Since that time, our distribution of pet products has grown to be an important segment of our total business.
WPVS is a wholesale regional distributor of pet foods, pet supplies, animal health products, farm supply products and lawn & garden products located in West Plains, Missouri. We deliver to independent retailers and veterinarians in Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and Illinois with our own fleet of trucks.
We believe that bigger isn't always better when it comes to providing products to our customers. Being a regional distributor allows us to be more responsive to our customer's needs. Since we are a small business ourselves, we understand the issues our customers face when trying to compete with the big box stores and online behemoths. Our team is constantly working to provide products and flexibility in service to help you compete in today's world.
