Rescheduled: Winsupply Partners with Drone Express to Make History.

For the first time in history, Winsupply will be offering drone delivery!

Due to inclement weather, Winsupply’s drone inaugural flight has been rescheduled to Friday, August 12.

On August 12 at 11 a.m., Winsupply, backed by Drone Express, will make its first-ever drone delivery of an exclusive NIBCO product from the Winsupply Distribution Center in Miamisburg, Ohio, to Centerville Winsupply. We ask guests and media to arrive by 10:30 a.m. at 875 Congress Park Drive, Washington Township, OH 45459.

“For Winsupply to continue delivering on our philosophy of helping courageous, capable, hardworking entrepreneurs succeed, we must always innovate,” said John McKenzie, President, Winsupply Inc. “Just imagine, a contractor is missing a single item to complete a job. Instead of a delay of days or weeks, that product appears out of the sky in a matter of minutes. That’s the direction Winsupply is going. That’s true innovation that Winsupply is committed to making a reality.”
