HISTORY – The business was founded in 1933 by Joe Peraldo in Paradise Valley, Nevada as Peraldo’s Distributing. In 1943, Charles Glenn became a partner and the business was moved to Elko where it was located on 5th Street. In 1947 the present location was constructed. An addition in the back was added in 1953. In 1956 Murdock’s in Ely was purchased and Louie Peraldo became a partner in Winnemucca. In 1960 the Winnemucca branch was sold to the younger Peraldo brother. In 1961 Joe Peraldo sold the Elko company to Charles Glenn and in 1968 it became Glenn Distributing. In 1974 Blach Corporation was formed and in 1975 acquired Glenn Distributing and operated the business as Glenn Distributing until 1979 when it became Blach Distributing Company. In 1980 the offices were remodeled and a refrigerated warehouse was added. Patrick Blach became President and CEO in 2003 upon returning to the Elko area taking over for his father, Alan Blach. Blach Distributing purchased the Peraldo territories in 2010 adding Humboldt, Lander and Pershing Counties.
Blach employs approximately 36 people in our service area.
