In addition to its extensive product portfolio, Venturi offers a range of value-added services and solutions, including valve actuation, custom fabrication, pipe coating and inspection, vendor managed inventory, and warehouse management.

Michael DiMino Appointed Chief Executive Officer

Michael DiMino, previously chief executive officer of Tri Star Industrial, has been appointed to the role of Venturi's chief executive officer, bringing over 30 years of experience leading both private and public distribution companies. DiMino has an extensive background in developing and growing distribution businesses organically and through strategic acquisitions, while improving processes and systems to increase customer satisfaction. Over the past several months, DiMino has expanded Venturi's executive leadership team and launched its new corporate headquarters in Phoenix.

"I am excited to lead Venturi Supply and its family of businesses, which collectively comprise one of the nation's largest independent PVF distributors," said DiMino. "Venturi will build on the legacy of the six acquired businesses and continue its track record of providing our customers with industry leading service and supply chain partnership, characterized by responsiveness, flexibility, and solutions-oriented sales support, and driven by a relentless focus on operational excellence."
