Winsupply, one of the largest distributors in the nation, has opened four new wholesale distribution locations in Maryland, Maine, Massachusetts and Tennessee, totaling nine new companies opened so far in 2017.

The new companies are:
• Winsupply of Beltsville, Md., plumbing, President Ralph Baker;
• Winsupply of Boston, plumbing and HVAC, President William Berberan;
• Winsupply of East Nashville, Tenn., HVAC, President Robert Reimer; and
• Winsupply of Presque Isle, Maine, plumbing and HVAC, President Aaron Hoard.

The four presidents are experienced individuals in their respective industries and have been groomed within the Winsupply organization to lead and own their own company under the Winsupply co-ownership business model.

“We are actively executing a key piece of our growth strategy at Winsupply in opening these new companies and with plans for the opening of more companies this year,” Winsupply President and CEO Roland Gordon said. “The Atlantic region and Nashville are attractive areas as we identify potential markets for growth.”

In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, local Winsupply companies have the local decision-making authority and flexibility to decide how best to meet the needs of their customers including carrying product lines unique to a geographical region. Winsupply provides the local company with centralized support, allowing its team to focus on its customers, local markets and products.
