MISSION, Texas — Winsupply Rio Grande Valley opened its doors to HVAC contractors on January 1, 2021. The new company serves HVAC contractors in the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas.
Ernesto “Ernie” Pena is the president of Winsupply of Rio Grande Valley. Pena has been in the HVAC industry for more than 10 years. He previously worked for Carrier, where he was in sales. Pena is joined by an equity partner at Winsupply of Rio Grande Valley in Joseph Midkiff, who was also previously at Carrier and leads non-sales related operations at the new company.
“Ernie, Joe, and the rest of their team have 40-plus years of experience in the HVAC industry,” said Rob Ferguson, president of Winsupply Local Company Group. “As owners of their own company, they have autonomy and local decision-making to decide how to meet the needs of their customers in the Rio Grande Valley.”
