About Us

Welcome

Welcome to Advance Plumbing & Heating Supply Company, a fourth-generation family owned and operated business, started by the late Harry Chernick in 1920. The company's original location was at 2984 Grand River Ave. in Detroit, across from the Motor City Casino. On October 31st 2016 we moved to our new location at 150 Parsons Street in Midtown Detroit. This new larger location will also feature the City of Detroit's first ever Decorative Plumbing Showroom in the Winter of 2018.

In 1990, with a solid reputation for excellence and an expanding market, Advance opened up a second location in Walled Lake, Michigan which features a state-of-the-art 5,000-square foot decorative plumbing showroom and an outstanding plumbing & heating parts counter.

Advance Plumbing & Heating Supply operation includes Jeffrey Moss, President, Wendy Moss, Human Resources along with their sons Josh Moss, Vice President, Justin Moss, Operation manager and Andrew Moss, Marketing Consultant.

Showroom

"Our decorative plumbing showroom in Walled Lake features the latest and greatest products the plumbing industry has to offer," says company President Jeffrey Moss, the late Harry Chernick's grandson. "We handle hundreds of extraordinary manufacturers from around the world."

The showroom carries most of the respected names in the plumbing industry, including Delta, Moen, Grohe, Elkay, Blanco, and Hansgrohe, and also features more unique, limited-distribution companies such as Dornbracht, Julien, Phylrich, Rohl, Toto, Sigma, Duravit, Ginger and Bain Ultra. Consumers are invited to see, feel and touch all the great products we have to offer for their home as they wander through this unique showroom, complete with innovative working bathroom displays incorporating working whirlpool tubs, shower heads, steamers, toilets, and kitchen faucets.

Sales Team

Although the products that are offered are top-notch, Advance Plumbing & Heating has its strength in our incredible, knowledgeable showroom sales staff. In today's competitive market, taking the time to fully understand each and every product is a daunting task, one that many other suppliers are not willing to take. Advance Plumbing remains at the forefront of the industry through our strong commitment to education and training. Every Wednesday we hold a product knowledge meeting, where a manufacturer comes in and teaches our sales team the ins and outs of the product line from benefits, proper use, installation and new technology. These product knowledge meetings are very important to our success at Advance Plumbing. These meetings provide our sales team with the knowledge they need to help our customers design the kitchen or bathroom of their dreams.

Warehouse

Advance Plumbing stocks over 13,000 items from pipes, valves and fittings to faucets, sinks, shower products, water heaters and much more in order to serve the customer in a timely manner. The ability to provide the products customers' need, when they need them has remained a staple throughout the Advance Plumbing history. By continuously, updating and improving warehousing process we are able to recognize purchasing trends as they evolve and minimize out-of-stock products as well as maintain timely and accurate delivery orders. If we do not stock an item that you need, we can easily order it as we have access to hundreds of manufacturers.
