Winsupply Inc., on Sept. 6 announced the opening of Winsupply of West Orange (County), in Ocoee, Florida, serving residential plumbing contractors and MRO for theme parks, resorts and hotels in central Florida.
Scott Karlson, president of Winsupply of West Orange, has worked in wholesale plumbing supplies for 23 years. In 2018 he joined Winsupply of Orlando. Karlson and his team of seven employees have a combined 150 years of plumbing and distribution experience.
“Scott has a love for plumbing and providing exceptional service to his plumbing customers,” says Monte Salsman, president of Winsupply Local Company Group. “He also loves the Winsupply shared ownership model in which he can achieve uncapped rewards and have the autonomy to make decisions that best serve his customers.”
“As a plumber, I learned very quickly how a great partner can grow a plumbing contractor’s business,” Karlson says. “As I transitioned my career from plumbing to working for a wholesaler, I brought that experience with me.”
As equity partner, Winsupply Inc. provides the local company locations purchasing power, distribution and other support services such as business consulting, accounting, payroll, IT and marketing, according to the company.
Winsupply Inc. is headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, with nearly 600 wholesaling locations in 45 states.
