The new location will become its sixth major regional distribution center.

Dayton, Ohio-based Winsupply Inc., a distributor of construction and industrial supplies and equipment, will open a new regional distribution center in Oklahoma City in 2022. Winsupply will own the 318,000 square-foot center, which is under construction alongside Interstate Highway 35.

The distribution center is being constructed by Brinkmann Constructors and sits on 40 acres at 9440 South I-35 Service Road.

The distribution center will become Winsupply’s sixth major regional distribution center, joining those in Dayton; Denver; Middletown, Connecticut; Richmond, Virginia; and Jacksonville, Florida.

Bobby Kellar, current operations manager of the Jacksonville DC, will become the general manager of the Oklahoma City DC.

“Our sixth DC will allow us to serve our local companies in the south-central part of the U.S. with one-day service,” says Eric Roush, Winsupply vice president of supply chain. When completed the new DC will provide primary service to about 80 local companies in Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.

The company plans to begin operations from the Winsupply RDC in the first half of 2022.
