CHICAGO — Benoist Brothers Supply Co., a wholesale HVAC distributor headquartered in Fenton, Missouri, and Mount Vernon, Illinois, acquired NuComfort Supply, a wholesale HVAC distributor headquartered in Glendale Heights, Illinois.

“Benoist Brothers Supply Co. is very excited to have NuComfort join the Benoist family. Both companies are leading wholesalers of the best HVAC equipment in the industry today through our relationship with Rheem Manufacturing Company and the Ruud brand,” said Peter Warren, CEO, Benoist Brothers Supply. “Like the Benoists, NuComfort owner, Marty Nuzik, has built a company with a culture of customer service and family that is second to none. We’re very excited that he has agreed to stay and run NuComfort, and I am looking forward to sharing best practices as we continue to grow the combined businesses together.”

Marty Nuzik, founder and owner, NuComfort Supply, insists NuComfort has the best employees in the HVAC industry.

“When we were approached by Benoist Brothers Supply Company, we needed to make sure we would have the right cultural fit,” he said. “Benoist has always had a reputation for taking great care of its employees and customers. I believe that both organizations will be better together, and I look forward to being a part of it.”

The three NuComfort branches will continue to operate under the NuComfort brand as a subsidiary of Benoist Brothers Supply Company, which is celebrating its 90th year in business this year.

“Benoist Brothers has always been about family — not just the Benoists, but the families of our employees, customers, and partners since our start in 1928,” said Matt Benoist, chairman of the Benoist Brothers Supply Company board of directors. “We could not have made it this far without a very strong commitment to family. NuComfort embodies these same values, and we could not be happier to have their families join ours moving forward.”
