DAYTON, Ohio — WinWholesale has opened two Winsupply locations and acquired a company that reopened as a Windustrial to expand its operations Florida, Maine and New York.
Rockledge Winsupply opened in Rockledge, Fla., to serve the natural gas, water heating and leisure markets on the Central Florida coast. In Brewer, Maine, Bangor Winsupply serves plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning contractors in northern and eastern Maine.
In New York, WinWholesale acquired Rochester Plumbing Supply, a family owned business founded more than 100 years ago. The company reopened as Rochester Windustrial serving industrial and commercial plumbing customers in a five county area. Rob Seiffert, who was president of Rochester Plumbing Supply and a fifth generation member of the founding family, continues as president of Windustrial.
“These companies represent two of the ways WinWholesale opens locations – acquisitions and startups by current Win location presidents or other employees. Many times a smaller acquisition like Rochester Plumbing Supply is an ideal way for the founders to continue, expand or exit that business while maintaining the legacy built over the years.” said Monte Salsman, WinWholesale chief operating officer. “The third way to open a location is a qualified person with the passion to succeed as an entrepreneur joining the WinWholesale organization to launch a company.”
WinWholesale has more than 460 local companies across the United States in addition to nearly 70 Noland Company locations, mainly in the Southeast. Noland Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of WinWholesale.
