Winsupply Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors of construction and industrial supplies and equipment, has announced it will open a new regional distribution center (RDC) in Oklahoma City in 2022. Winsupply will own the 318,000-square-foot center which is under construction alongside I-35.
The RDC is being constructed by Brinkmann Constructors and sits on 40 acres at 9440 S. I-35 Service Road.
Winsupply Vice President of Supply Chain Eric Roush said the distribution center will become the company's sixth major RDC joining Winsupply RDCs in Dayton, Ohio; Denver; Middletown, Connecticut; Richmond, Virginia; and Jacksonville, Florida.
Bobby Kellar, current operations manager of the Jacksonville RDC, will become the general manager of the Oklahoma City RDC.
“Our sixth RDC will allow us to serve our local companies in the south-central part of the U.S. with one-day service,” Roush said.
When completed, the new RDC will provide primary service to about 130 local companies in Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.
Winsupply is a more than $4 billion wholesaler-distributor of plumbing, industrial pipe, valves and fittings, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, electrical, waterworks, and other supplies to contractors in 45 states. The company plans to begin operations from the Winsupply RDC in the first-half of 2022.
