Moraine-based Winsupply Inc. has opened Winsupply of Kerrville (Texas), a business distributing plumbing, heating and air conditioning (HVAC), and water well equipment in southwest Texas, and Winsupply of Chattanooga (Tenn.), serving HVAC contractors in southeast Tennessee and north Georgia.
In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc. has majority equity in each of its locations, while local company presidents and sometimes employees own substantial equity.
“With this model, local companies have the autonomy and flexibility to decide how best to meet the needs of the customers in their markets,” Winsupply said in an announcement Monday. “Co-ownership gives them pride of ownership, a sense of achievement and the ability to share in the company’s performance financially.”
Winsupply’s administrative offices provide local companies purchasing power, distribution and other support services such as accounting, payroll, IT and marketing.
Winsupply Inc. is a supplier of residential and commercial construction and industrial supplies and equipment with nearly 600 wholesaling locations in 45 states.
