Winsupply Acquires Industrial Equipment & Parts

The companys legal name becomes Winsupply of Plymouth, MN Co., but will continue to do business as Industrial Equipment & Parts.

Winsupply Inc., Dayton, Ohio, has acquired Industrial Equipment & Parts, a Plymouth, Minnesota-based distributor of heavy industrial pumps. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Industrial Equipment & Parts provides heavy industrial pumps and supporting value-added parts and services to its customer base of pulp, paper and ethanol industries in five surrounding states of the Upper Midwest. Scott Koontz, previously the general manager at Industrial Equipment & Parts, is staying and will make a substantial investment in the acquired company, and become minority owner and president of the single-location business. Winsupply is the majority owner, reflecting its entrepreneurial, shared-ownership business model.

“Industrial Equipment & Parts has carved out a special niche as a value-added provider of industrial pumps to its customers,” said Monte Salsman, president of Winsupply Acquisitions Group. “Scott Koontz began as an applications engineer who rapidly moved up to sales, then as sales leader, and ultimately as general manager. He has a highly skilled team of industrial experts to serve their customers in Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota and Wisconsin. Now Scott is making a substantial investment as minority owner of the company with Winsupply as majority owner so he can share in the company’s success.”

The company’s legal name becomes Winsupply of Plymouth, MN Co., but will continue to do business as Industrial Equipment & Parts.
