Residential and industrial supplies distributor Winsupply has announced its plan to offer drone delivery, according to a company news release.
Backed by Drone Express, Winsupply plans to make its first-ever drone delivery on Aug. 9 on a three-mile flight from the company’s distribution center in Miamisburg, Ohio to Centerville Winsupply. The flight will mark the first of many drone deliveries weighing under five pounds from that Winsupply DC.
“For Winsupply to continue delivering on our philosophy of helping courageous, capable, hard working entrepreneurs succeed, we must always innovate,” Winsupply President John McKenzie said in a statement. “Just imagine, a contractor is missing a single item to complete a job. Instead of a delay of days or weeks, that product appears out of the sky in a matter of minutes. That’s the direction Winsupply is going. That’s true innovation that Winsupply is committed to making a reality.”
“We are really excited to enter into this unique partnership with Winsupply,” added Drone Express CEO Beth Flippo. “This delivery model is a game-changer in the world of construction. Pioneering this system with Winsupply is a perfect fit.”
