Winsupply Opens Winwater Near Washington D.C., Acquires Design Firm

Washington Winwater is Winsupply's sixth new business of 2016, while the company has bought local firm Wilcon Corp. to manage its property and future commercial projects nationwide.

Dayton, OH-based Winsupply — No. 15 on Industrial Distribution's 2015 Big 50 List — has opened a new Winwater location in the Washington D.C. suburb Hyattsville, MD to serve contractors and munipalities with waterworks and utility products.

The new company, called Washington Winsupply, is led by 35-year waterworks veteran John Calhan.

“John brings a wealth of knowledge in waterworks and customer focus that reflects the Winsupply vision of creating loyal, profitable customers by offering superior solutions for their everyday needs and unique challenges,” said Monte Salsman, chief operating officer of Winsupply. “Washington Winwater is located inside the beltway to best serve the metro area. There are significant growth opportunities in infrastructure repair in the region."

Washington Winwater is Winsupply's sixth  new company opened in 2016.

In other Winsupply news, the Dayton Business Journal reports that the company has acquired a local design-build firm, Wilcon Corp., to manage Winsupply's property and future commercial projects.

Terms were not disclosed for the sale, which was finalized earlier this week, although the DBJ did say the sale included Winsupply paying $1.2 million for Wilcon's headquarters. Wilcon is expected to retain its name.

Wilcon told the DBJ it has done work for Winsupply for 30 years.

"We've done their work for 30 years and they needed someone to handle their property management of all their facilities all over the country," Wilcon president Dennis Williams said.
