John Paul Ismert and Mark Ismert purchased Gathright Sales in January 2002, and changed the name to Bulls-i Sales. The Gathrights had the rep agency since 1952 and were rooted in Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas. Well established lines such as Florestone, Rectorseal and Centoco came with the purchase and John and Mark have grown the agency to include fast-growing manufacturers such as Sioux Chief, Cello Products, Dahl Valve, Schier Products, Midland Metal and JB Products.
The Ismert family has a long history in the plumbing industry including manufacturing, wholesale and now manufacturer’s agents. John’s background includes over 10 years in the wholesale plumbing business as an outside salesman. Mark’s background includes remodeling and working in manufacturing for nearly 12 years.
