About National Oak
National Oak was formed through the consolidation of regional and local distribution businesses. Geoffrey Peckham, CEO, purchased a single warehouse in Florida in the mid-1990's. With a vision of building the country's first national footprint Paint, Body, and Equipment (PBE) distribution business, he named that business "National PBE".
Over the following 15 years, Geoffrey realized his vision of a national PBE distribution footprint. He consolidated over a dozen of the most reputable PBE distribution brands. One of those companies, formally called "Oak PBE", which operated along the West coast, is how the company became known as National Oak.
The foundation for Geoffrey's vision for a national PBE distribution footprint has always been based on the benefits that the customer would realize. Customers who partner with National Oak enjoy the scale and efficiency of a national business while maintaining a local customer service touch.
