Dayton, Ohio-based Winsupply recently announced the opening of two new locations in Southern California and Arkansas. The national distributor opened a Winsupply fire and fabrication location in Lake Elsinore, Calif., serving fire-sprinkler system contractors throughout Southern California.

The manager of the local Winsupply company, Bryan Geer, and his team bring more than 100 combined years of experience supplying and fabricating fire sprinkler equipment and systems. Geer has led a company, served as vice president of sales and was an estimator for more than 20 years in the fire sprinkler industry. His team of 13 people includes experts in fire sprinkler sales, fabrication, welding, estimating and warehousing.

“The fire sprinkler supplies and fabrication industry continues to be an area of growth at Winsupply,” CEO and President Roland Gordon said. “Bryan and his team are experts in fire sprinklers and fabrication. With their combined expertise and local customer focus – and the strong partnership with Winsupply – they’re well positioned to serve the entire region. They have strong existing relationships with contractors in the area.”

Additionally, the company announced the opening of Winwater of Northeast Arkansas, serving waterworks contractors throughout the northeast part of the state. The company is located just east of Jonesboro in Lake City.

Tony Robinson is the president of the new company. He leads a team of four who have 25 combined years of experience in the waterworks industry. Robinson and his team formerly were part of Little Rock Winwater and had been operating in Lake City as a satellite location. The two companies now operate separately, but are both part of Winsupply.

“Tony is an experienced business owner with years of experience in waterworks products and has established customer relationships in the northeast part of Arkansas,” Gordon said. “Tony took advantage of what we call the ‘Spirit of Opportunity’ at Winsupply in which we share ownership in the company. He can now work with his customers in an owner-to-owner relationship with local decision-making authority.”
