First Supply, LLC, in direct response to the needs of the market, announced expansion plans. With a Grand Opening scheduled for August 31, 2017 in Weston, Wisconsin, this 12,000-square-foot facility will house inventory from key vendor partners with a focus on serving the plumbing and HVAC contractor needs. This location will be a “self-pick” style facility, designed to establish local inventory while complementing the company’s twice-daily delivery service out of Rhinelander and Plover, Wisconsin. The opening of this branch will enhance the ability for contractors to get what they need, when they need it.
“Our expansion into the Wausau market positions us to better serve our customer’s needs in the area with local inventory and expertise. This new branch also allows us to carry on our 120-year proud tradition of being active and engaged members of the local communities we serve. I look forward to us continuing to build on our rich legacy of regional market leadership and exceeding customer expectations with this newest branch addition,” Paul Kennedy, president of First Supply stated.
Managing this facility will be Jerry Barnett, who brings years of industry knowledge gained through managing the First Supply facility in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. To ensure this new branch lives up to the standards of all customers, Barnett will have an on-site branch supervisor in Robert Gregurich, who brings a reputation in the Wausau area of being a go-to resource and is highly respected in the market.
