Dayton, Ohio-based Winsupply has opened a new location in Tempe, Ariz., serving the fire-sprinkler and fabrication industries in the Phoenix metropolitan area and beyond.
Danny Garcia is the president of the new company and has 18 years’ experience in fire sprinklers and fabrication. Garcia and his team of four employees bring more than 30 combined years of experience in the fire-sprinkler and fabrication industries to Winsupply.
“The opening of Winsupply of Tempe marks the fourth new company Winsupply has opened in 2017,” said Roland Gordon, president and CEO of Winsupply. “Fire and fabrication services continue to offer opportunities for growth throughout the country. Danny brings his expertise and leadership experience to this new location, having previously led a similar operation. We’re very fortunate Danny was attracted to business ownership and joined Winsupply.”
In the Winsupply coownership business model, Winsupply has majority equity in each of its locations, while the local company presidents and sometimes employees own substantial equity. With this model, local companies have the autonomy and flexibility to decide how best to meet the needs of the customers in their markets. Coownership gives them “skin in the game,” pride of ownership, a sense of achievement and the ability to share in the company’s performance financially, Winsupply noted.
Winsupply provides the local company locations purchasing power, distribution and other support services such as business consulting, accounting, payroll, IT and marketing. The centralized support allows local operators to focus on their customers, local markets and products, the distributor explained.
