PVF Industrial

PVF Industrial is a local family-owned and operated company founded by Michaelle Popovec and Israel Barnes, former Barnes Industrial Plastic Piping executives. After many years of hard work, commitment, and a lot of patience, they, their family, along with their employees, grew the company to be the largest stocking industrial plastic wholesale company in the Southeast United States. PVF Industrial has taken the experience from working with Atlantis, Baha Mar, Sea World, Disney, Miami Sea Aquarium, Tampa, and Trinidad desalination plants, numerous WWTP, and many more projects to build a solid reputation within the industry.  

On July 7, 2014, Barnes Industrial was acquired by Ryan Herco Flow Solutions. After repeated encouragement and requests from our clients and the Barnes family wanting to be back in the PVC industry, we returned and reopened as PVF Industrial in September 2019. We are excited to re-engage with our clients and industry businesses.

We can quickly supply your business with the high-quality products of pipes, valves, fittings, and supplies that you need for your project.
