DAYTON, Ohio — Winsupply Inc. has opened five new locations — four in Texas that serve HVAC contractors and one in Denver that focuses on fire protection systems.

The new companies include: Winsupply of Austin HVAC, Winsupply of Dallas HVAC, Winsupply of Houston HVAC, Winsupply of San Antonio HVAC, and Winsupply of Denver Fire Protection.
Denise Corbin, president of Winsupply of Austin HVAC; Troy Drinkard, president of Winsupply Dallas HVAC; Jason Greagrey, president of Winsupply of Houston; and Carlton Hooper, Winsupply of San Antonio, all recently joined the company with many years of collective experience, product knowledge, and distribution in the HVAC industry. At Winsupply of Denver, president Fred Apodaca has many years of experience in fire protection and plumbing at other Winsupply locations in Colorado.

“We’re very fortunate to have the caliber of expertise and industry knowledge in the five individuals who are opening these locations,” said Monte Salsman, COO of Winsupply Inc. “Texas is a highly attractive market, and the addition of these companies represents a greatly increased presence for Winsupply in HVAC. Similarly, the Colorado market is a target for us with the recent code changes requiring all single-family residential structures to have fire sprinkler systems installed. There are significant growth opportunities in both states. We’re starting 2016 with a lot of momentum with these new locations, which is a reflection of our commitment to growing the business and building customer relationships.”

In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc. has majority equity in each of its locations while the 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 customers in their markets. There are now more than 580 Winsupply locations across the U.S. serving the residential and commercial construction and industrial markets with supplies and materials.
