showroom at 608 Business Park Lane opened for business in April. Comfort Supply has stores in Nashville, Murfreesboro, Cookeville, and Clarksville.

“Knoxville is a particularly good location for Comfort Supply because of its central location within East Tennessee,” said David Sosna, branch manager for the new store. “Knoxville’s proximity to and partnership with Oak Ridge, and its investment in energy research also make it an extremely attractive location for a HVAC business.”

Knoxville and Oak Ridge form Innovation Valley, which businesses include the headquarters of the Tennessee Valley Authority and facilities for the U.S. Department of Energy.

“Knoxville was the next logical step for Comfort Supply,” said CEO Clay Blevins. “We look forward to working with HVAC retailers within the community and being a part of this forward-looking city.”
