Winsupply Celebrates "A New Sense of Place"

In July 2022, Winsupply celebrated the opening of the Richard W. Schwartz Center for Innovation, a 28,000 sqft facility that will serve as the primary training and innovation center for the organization.

To commemorate the event, Chairman Rick Schwartz commissioned a Lego® model of the Winsupply support services campus that was distributed at the dedication. The building kit contains 298 Lego® elements, custom-printed tiles and an 84-page printed instruction manual that showcases the Winsupply story - all the way back to 1956 when three businessmen and boyhood friends from Dayton, Ohio, decided to collaborate on a new business venture!

Special thanks to Rick Schwartz, Bill Tolliver, Bruce Anderson & Teresa Zumwald for your partnership in bringing this project to life and congratulations, again, to the entire Winsupply organization for your continued leadership in innovation and entrepreneurship in Dayton, Ohio!

From humble beginnings in 1962 in the basement of a house in Dayton, Ohio, the Winsupply Family of Companies is now a collection of 640 independent, locally owned and operated wholesaling locations across the U.S. that altogether produced more than $5 billion in revenues in 2021.
