Johnstone Supply, Inc. has announced that Colonial Plumbing and Heating Supply Inc., a successful three-store company based in Albany NY with locations in Glens Falls and Oneonta, has officially joined the Johnstone cooperative. As an independent member of the Johnstone organization Colonial will retain full ownership and management of its stores, while being able to access the expertise and business resources of a major national distribution company, including expanded product offerings and purchasing leverage, enhanced marketing materials, and operational and logistical support.
Colonial is joining the cooperative as a way to provide wider heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration parts and equipment product offering to the Albany region and expanded services for its customers. Colonial business initiatives stemming from the agreement include major remodeling at its Glens Falls and Oneonta operations, as well as significant capital expenditures in a wholly new Johnstone Supply facility adjoining its Albany headquarters.
Prior to joining the Johnstone cooperative, Colonial had successfully been in business for over 60 years and currently employs more than 30 staff among its three stores.
