Supply House Times names Winsupply 'Supply House of the Year'

DAYTON, Ohio, September 24, 2015 – Following a year of outstanding growth in 2014 and continued growth during 2015, Winsupply Inc., formerly Wholesale Inc. and one of the largest distributors in the nation, has been chosen by Supply House Times magazine as its 2015 Supply House of the Year.

Supply House Times magazine selected Winsupply in its September issue, featuring the company on its cover story.

“Winsupply’s unique local ownership business model fosters an environment where its owners, employees and customers can thrive,” Supply House Times Editor Mike Miazga said. “This commitment to helping people, along with being good industry citizens were key factors in Winsupply being named our 2015 Supply House of the Year.”

“We consider this recognition from Supply House Times the best acknowledgement possible of our fantastic year in 2014 in which we delivered strong sales growth through same company sales, new companies opened and acquisitions,” said Jack Johnston, chief executive officer, Winsupply. “We continue to perform solidly in 2015 and have opened five new companies year to date. We’ve also acquired Security Supply in New York and M Cooper Supply in Illinois to further fuel our growth.

“Our success comes from our unique shared-ownership business model in which decision making is made at the local company level. We offer entrepreneurs the ‘Spirit of Opportunity’ to own and operate their own distribution company, while drawing on the resources and support of a $2.5 billion organization. Contractors enjoy an owner-to-owner relationship with our local companies, which have an unrelenting desire to serve their customers with the breadth and depth of supplies and equipment, when and where they need them.”

The Supply House Times Supply House of the Year award is given to a deserving distributor that demonstrates continued success in the marketplace, embraces forward-thinking strategies to best help its customers and is active in industry programs and initiatives. The award is chosen by the Supply House Times staff with input from key industry partners.

This is the second time Winsupply has earned this award. The company previously was named Supply House of the Year in 2004.
