The Winsupply Family of Companies is a leading supplier of materials for residential and commercial construction as well as industrial use. Since 1956, we have provided enterprising entrepreneurs with the opportunity to own and operate their own business, all with the support of committed support and services. It’s our mission to help hard-working people achieve the American dream in an era that pushes business owners to reinvent traditional success strategies.
Our privately held company has helped nearly 600 local owners build their Winsupply businesses across 45 states. These supply-house locations are individual corporations, with Winsupply as the majority equity partner. We believe local ownership is critical to success.
Owners are rewarded based on results, which means there’s no cap to compensation. We call this crucial combination of risk and reward “earned success.”
Via our Winsupply locations, we provide preferred pricing and services to thousands of contractor businesses. We also offer training and support to help ensure local contractor success.
We have 57 locations operated by Noland Company (a wholly owned subsidiary), as well as 20 Carr Supply, 12 Security Plumbing and Heating Supply, 11 APCO, four Wyatt Irrigation, three Certified Plumbing and Electrical Supply, two Electrical Sales, two Tacoma Electric Supply locations, and Thomas Pipe & Supply.
Allegheny Valley Winlectric, opening its doors in 2005, has the tools needed to get your job done right with the family touch you want. Jim Posney, President, has been in the electrical wholesale business since 1975. He comes from a family full of electrical wholesalers. His father, Thomas A. Posney, operated Posney Electric in Tarentum from 1957 until 1982. Jim went off on his own business venture becoming the branch manager of Gerome Electric Supply in Tarentum from 1982-1992. In 1992, Jim ventured into business with Brown & Powell Electric, becoming the Allegheny Valley branch manager for a well-established name in the Pittsburgh market. After Brown & Powell's closure in 2005, Jim was able to buy into the "WinWay" and become a president.
In 2012, Jim hired his son, Camden, as a warehouse / delivery associate. After Cam finished his time at Waynesburg University, Cam moved into a sales role in the company. After 3 years in sales, he has found his position as the Operations Manager and works closely managing operations with his father on a day-to-day basis. His goal is to become the next President of AV Winlectric and continue the Posney tradition.
