DAYTON, OH — Winsupply Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors (No. 6 on ID's Big 50 List), has opened Winsupply of East Tennessee in Seymour, TN. The new company is located just southeast of Knoxville near the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The company serves heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing contractors throughout East Tennessee.
Logan Hale is the president of Winsupply of East Tennessee. Hale previously was in HVAC distribution in the Knoxville area and in Georgia. He is a University of Tennessee (Knoxville) graduate who fell in love with the area and returned there to accept this ownership opportunity with Winsupply.
“We’re very impressed with Logan as a young leader and with his knowledge and experience in wholesale distribution,” said Rob Ferguson, president of Winsupply Local Company Group. “East Tennessee including Knoxville and the surrounding area is experiencing rapid growth and we feel Logan and his team will serve it well.”
Hale is investing in substantial ownership of the new Winsupply company in Seymour. In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc. has majority equity in each of its locations, while local company presidents like Hale and sometimes employees own substantial equity. In addition to local decision-making, they also share uncapped financial rewards and risks of ownership. Winsupply Inc. provides the local company locations purchasing power, sourcing distribution, digital commerce, IT, business consulting, marketing, accounting and payroll, among other services.
