DAYTON, Ohio, August 13, 2018 – Winsupply Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors, has opened Winsupply of Kerrville, Tex., serving plumbing, heating and air conditioning (HVAC), and water well contractors in southwest Texas; and Winsupply of Chattanooga Tenn., serving HVAC contractors in southeast Tennessee and north Georgia.
Ronnie Sprenger is president of Winsupply of Kerrville. He has 18 years’ experience in plumbing and HVAC. Sprenger and his team of three employees bring a lot of combined experience in plumbing and HVAC. Its service region includes the following counties: Kerr, Bandera, Gillespie, Uvalde, Maverick, Valverde, Kendall, Comal, Edwards, Real and Kimble.
“At Winsupply of Kerrville, we pride ourselves in offering the best customer service and reliability in the industry,” Sprenger said.
Jeremy Whitworth is president of Winsupply of Chattanooga. He has been a branch manager in HVAC for 20 years. Jeremy and his staff bring more than 40 years of expertise in HVAC.
“We will be relentless in our efforts at being the best at customer service and HVAC distributor of choice,” Whitworth said. “Being an owner is exciting. (Unlike my previous employer) this means my customers will no longer be waiting on decisions from higher up because the decisions will be made at the local company level.”
“Both Ronnie and Jeremy join Winsupply with many years of expertise in the respective plumbing and HVAC industries,” said Roland Gordon, president and CEO of Winsupply, Inc. “Perhaps even more important is how well both of them fit within our entrepreneurial culture at Winsupply. Each wanted to own his own business and Winsupply has made those dreams a reality.”
In the Winsupply co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc. has majority equity in each of its locations, while the local company presidents and sometimes employees own substantial equity. Sources say with this model, local companies have the autonomy and flexibility to decide how best to meet the needs of the customers in their markets. Co-ownership gives them pride of ownership, a sense of achievement and the ability to share in the company’s performance financially.
Winsupply provides the local company locations purchasing power, distribution and other support services such as business consulting, accounting, payroll, IT and marketing.
