In addition to well-respected, branded manufacturers, WSO sells private-label products in an effort to gain market share and grow overall revenue. In our view, the company has plenty of room for growth. With the industry size approximated at $26 billion and annual growth set to grow well above 3%, WSO 2006 revenue of $1.8 billion represents a very small portion of the overall pie (7.4%).
