One of the region’s largest companies announces Moraine expansion

One of the region’s largest companies will expand its campus in Moraine by adding a 41,000-square-foot facility for a local company. The project will “drive progress and spur innovation,” the company’s president said.

Winsupply Inc. announced Winsupply of North Dayton will move from its current location at 3739 Inpark Circle in Dayton to Winsupply’s Support Services Campus on Kettering Blvd. in Moraine. The move will see the addition of a 41,000-square-foot facility on the campus.

Of the 41,000 total square feet, according to a news release, 23,000 square feet will be reserved for warehouse storage and another 4,200 square feet will consist of a local company office and sales counter. The rest of the space will be for multi-purpose storage and future company needs, the release said.

The building, designed by Moraine-based Roll and Associates Architects, will include two loading docks, multiple doors for customer pick-ups, custom-designed lighting and “will showcase many of the products and services being offered within the company,” according to the release. Wilcon Co., part of the Winsupply Family of Companies, is doing the construction.

Winsupply expects to break ground in the fall, the release said, followed by a grand opening in the spring of 2024.

Winsupply representatives did not immediately respond to further questions from the Dayton Business Journal. However, in statements, several officials commented on what the project means for the company and the Moraine campus.

“The continued expansion of the Winsupply campus is a reflection of the company’s determination to drive progress and spur innovation,” Winsupply President Jeff Dice said. “This addition will create a more dynamic environment to allow creativity and entrepreneurship to flourish.”

Jeffrey Dice is president of Moraine-based Winsupply — one of the country’s leading suppliers of materials for residential and commercial construction. Winsupply owns a majority equity stake in more than 660 local companies across the United States.

Bill Tolliver, vice president of real estate services and in-house counsel for Winsupply, added, in his own statement, that the project is “another sign of expansive growth of Winsupply and our commitment to the city”

Winsupply of North Dayton President Scott Ballard, for his part, is excited about the move to Moraine.

“We are projecting growth rates double what we have experienced over the last two years,” he said. “With most of our competitors located in downtown Dayton or north of Dayton, we anticipate significant traffic at our customer counter since we will be one of only a few options south of downtown Dayton.”

Additionally, Ballard touted the size of the new building, which he said will “help us accommodate large customer orders that require us to hold materials for the duration of projects.” Ballard added that the project is a “move we have known was needed for several years.”

Outside of Moraine, Winsupply also wants to build a new 60,000-square-foot enclosure for outdoor storage next to its existing warehouse and offices off Byers Road in Miami Township. The project, if approved, would expand its product offerings in the Dayton region.

Winsupply is the region’s second-largest company, according to DBJ research, with a revenue of $7 billion in 2022. It employs 550 people locally.
