Comfort Supply Inc., a wholesale distributor of Ruud HVAC products, announced today plans to open a fourth location in Clarksville, TN. The new warehouse/showroom at 1460 New Ashland City Road opened for business on April 12. Comfort Supply has stores in Nashville, Murfreesboro and Cookeville.
The 8,000-square-foot Clarksville location of Comfort Supply will offer everything that residential and commercial contractors need to install and service HVAC equipment. Comfort Supply will host an open house for contractors at the new location on Wednesday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Clarksville is a particularly good location for Comfort Supply because the residential construction industry has fared much better here than in most other Tennessee cities during the economic downturn,” says Jimmy Shelton, sales consultant for the new store. “We see a great potential for growth in this market.”
In November of last year, CNNMoney.com ranked Clarksville fourth in the nation in terms of mid-sized cities in which to start up a new business. The article cited an influx of manufacturing jobs, including the new Hemlock Semiconductor plant, which is expected to employ up to 800 people.
“We have wanted to expand to Clarksville for some time now,” explains Clay Blevins, Comfort Supply CEO. “We look forward to working with the contractors in the community and being a part of this great city.”
Like Clarksville, Comfort Supply has grown at a rapid rate in recent years, expanding from one location to four within four years. Its first new location in Murfreesboro opened in 2006, and the Cookeville office opened in 2008. The company’s revenue has grown at an annual rate of approximately 15 percent for the past four years.
“We are grateful to have experienced success during these challenging times,” Blevins says. “People will choose to do business with you, we believe, if you provide great service and an outstanding product at a fair price. This is what we have built our business on, and we look forward to bringing the same customer-focused approach to our Clarksville store.”For more information, visit www.comfortsupplyhvac.com.
