Charles “Chuck” May, a second-generation owner, becomes president of May Supply and is purchasing equity in the company under Winsupply’s shared ownership business model. May was formerly operations manager.

“May Supply is well-known for outstanding service that includes the best solutions, product selection and knowledge base throughout its market,” said Monte Salsman, president of Winsupply Acquisitions Group.

“We are all excited to be part of a larger organization, but still be able to operate independently,” May said. “Winsupply gave the stockholders a fair deal and treated the new employees to more opportunity.”

Monday's news is just the latest in a flurry of recent activity for Dayton, OH-based Winsupply, a distributor of industrial, plumbing and HVAC products that was No. 7 on Industrial Distribution’s 2019 Big 50 List.
