NEW LENNOX, Ill. — Munch’s Supply, a Midwest-based heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) distributor, has acquired T.A. Gentry Supply Inc., including its three branches servicing Lansing, Kalamazoo, and Holland, Michigan. This will expand Munch's geographic footprint to 70 locations, serving 17 states and one Canadian province.
“The T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. acquisition is part of our long-term strategy to expand into the plumbing segment in the Michigan market. The company will continue to operate under the T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. name and its three locations will nicely complement our HVAC offerings in our eight Munch and Tommark locations,” said Munch's CEO Bob Munch. “With the help of dedicated staff and a great culture, Patrick and his family have done a wonderful job growing the company. We are excited to build on the tremendous foundation that they have established."
“We couldn’t have made it 50 years without the tremendous support from our customers and team members. I am very happy to find a trusted company like Munch’s to continue the T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. legacy,” said T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. President Patrick Gentry. “We are fortunate to have found a like-minded partner in Munch’s Supply. We look forward to working with the Munch’s Supply and Tommark teams to serve an even broader base in the home services marketplace in Michigan."
The acquisition demonstrates Munch’s ongoing dedication to the HVAC and plumbing marketplace and reinforces its commitment to partnering with family and customer-service focused businesses looking for either a long-term partnership or an exit strategy.
Munch’s Supply has been operating in the Chicagoland area for more than 65 years. Marcone, a distributor of home appliance, HVAC, and plumbing repair parts and equipment across North America, acquired Munch’s Supply LLC in 2021 and strives to become the hub for parts and services to the home.
