Winsupply, one of the nation’s largest wholesalers, has named Odessa Winlectric (Texas) its 2018 Company of the Year. Odessa Winlectric was the overall winner while several other Winsupply companies were named winners in their respective industries. Each year Winsupply recognizes its top performing companies in plumbing, HVAC, industrial, electrical, waterworks, pump, turf irrigation, and fire fabrication.
The top performing companies, locations and presidents in their respective industry and individual award winners include:
“Each of these companies had an outstanding year led by courageous entrepreneurs,” said Monte Salsman, president of Winsupply Local Company Group. “They achieved strong business results by earning the trust of their customers to serve and help them achieve their own business goals. Winsupply presidents provide an owner-to-owner relationship with their contractors that is made possible through our shared ownership business model.”
In the Winsupply co-ownership 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, each local company has the autonomy and flexibility to decide how best to meet the needs of its customers. Co-ownership gives them “skin in the game,” pride of ownership, a sense of achievement and the ability to share in the company’s performance financially.
All of the “Win” branded locations are part of Winsupply: Winsupply, Winnelson, Winair, Windustrial, Winwater, Winlectric, and Winpump. Thomas Pipe and Wyatt Irrigation are also Winsupply companies.
