In January of 2016, Murphy Distributors began operating out of their new 20,000-square-foot building on Business Park Drive in Branford, a large increase in space from their previous 3,800 square foot building. Matt Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors, said the convenient access to the highways at this location makes it easy for his five trucks to deliver products all across the state of Connecticut. Along with stocking their own inventory of products, Murphy said they also operate as a warehouse, logistics and delivery for smaller import companies.
“We are super excited about this and we will grow with this location,” Murphy said. The company also recently added Fabio Viviani Wines to its portfolio and began exclusively distributing the wines in March. Fabio Viviani, originally from Florence, Italy, is known for his television debut on Bravo’s hit reality series “Top Chef.” There are four wines currently in the collection: No. 19 Chardonnay; No. 78 Cabernet Sauvignon; No. 3 Signature Red Blend; and No. 4 Signature White Blend.
