WinWholesale recently acquired Midwest Industrial Sales in Kansas City, Kan., and reopened it Feb. 6 as Kansas
City Winfastener Co. According to WinWholesale officials, as part of
the plan to offer expanded services and inventory, the tools division of KC Windustrial Co., a PVF supplier in Kansas City, Mo., moved
to the new company.
Richard S. (Shane) Garrison, who was a
co-owner of Midwest Industrial Sales, was named president of Kansas City Winfastener.
The company provides industrial joiners, tensioners, fastening systems and
tools to the Kansas City metropolitan area,
including15 counties in Kansas and Missouri.
In addition to adding the tools division, Kansas City
Winfastener will add product lines. Among the current lines are Gripple joiners
and tensioners, and Metabo, Milwaukee,
RIGID and LENOX tools.
“Kansas City Winfastener is a great addition to the Win
Group of Companies in the Kansas City
metro area,” said Monte Salsman, WinWholesale chief
operating officer. “Our team members there have 100 years of experience. We
believe putting that together with expanded services and inventory is a huge
advantage for customers.”
Under the WinWholesale business model, it owns the majority
of shares in Kansas City Winfastener and other Win companies while providing
services such as payroll, accounting, IT and vehicle management. This
arrangement allows the local company to focus on customer relationships and
sales. Other shareholders, some local, own the remainder of a company’s shares.
