Move expands the distributor’s reach in North Carolina.

Dayton, Ohio-based Winsupply Inc. completed the purchase of Atlantic Coastal Supply, a specialty plumbing distributor in Greenville, North Carolina. Atlantic Coastal Supply focuses on commercial and institutional customers including municipalities, schools, hospitals and prisons.

Atlantic Coastal Supply, owned by John Meeks and his sister Lea Meeks-Blinson, was founded in 1992 by their father. Meeks, president of Atlantic Coastal Supply, will remain president. Both he and other key employees plan to make a significant investment in the company. The Winsupply business model is built on creating partnerships with local entrepreneurs in which each location has a team co-owners along with Winsupply.

“We welcome another great family-built business to Winsupply,” says Monte Salsman, president of Winsupply Acquisition Group.“We are very enthusiastic and honored to have John and Lea join our team. It’s clear why they’ve been so successful. They are great people with a strong commitment to do the right thing for their customers, their employees and their vendors.”
