Dayton-area Winsupply earns national ranking

Moraine-based Winsupply Inc., one of the largest wholesale distributors in the nation, ranked in the top 10 of distributors in the United States for 2016, according to an annual industry study.

Distribution Center, an industry publication, ranks distributors on quality of heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration distribution. Winsupply landed in sixth place out of the top 50 distributors in the nation.

Fourteen distributors reported double-digit sales increases for fiscal 2015, including Winsupply.

“Organic growth, the opening of five new locations, and two key acquisitions – Security Supply, a 12-location regional distributor based in upstate New York, and M Cooper Supply, serving the Chicago metro area – were instrumental in our overall growth,” said Roland Gordon, president of Winsupply.

Winsupply reached $2.7 billion in revenue in the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, according to Winsupply officials.

Gordon said that despite a U.S. economy that grew somewhat slowly in 2015, strong construction markets provided tailwinds for Winsupply.
