State Supreme Court Justice John Michalek, in a recently unsealed decision, has ruled that 1st Source Servall, which opened a Buffalo sales office shortly after St. Louis-based Marcone Supply Co. acquired AP Wagner Co. in January 2010. AP Wagner began in Buffalo in 1928 when it was founded as Buffalo Washing Machine Repair Co. Marcone and 1st Source Servall are the largest appliance parts distributors in the country.
