In the Winsupply
co-ownership business model, Winsupply Inc. has majority
equity in each of its locations, while the local company
president 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. Co-ownership gives them “skin in
the game,” pride of ownership and the ability to share in
the company’s profits without caps. Winsupply provides its
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.
There are some 580 Winsupply locations across the United
States serving the residential and commercial construction
and industrial markets with supplies and materials.
