Family owned and operated, and with history dating back to the early 1900’s, Viking Supply was established in 1959 by John F (Jack) Kindelan. Jack worked for, and later owned, his father’s plumbing & heating supply business (Providence Supply), before moving to Westerly in the 1950s.
A few years after establishing Viking Supply, Jack became disabled and his wife Viola (Vi) continued to run the business until her retirement in 1994. John, Jr. joined her full time after graduating from college, followed by his brother, James and later sister Mary Ellen.
Viking is now in its 3rd generation as we have been joined by John F. Kindelan III (Jack). The business has grown from a small business run out of the basement of the family home, to two full-service locations, one in Norwich, CT and one in Westerly, RI.
