Winsupply, in partnership with Drone Express, will make its first drone delivery on Aug. 9. The distributor will send a product from a Dayton, Ohio, Distribution Center to a Winsupply location.
The three-mile flight will be of a product under 5 pounds.
“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,” said President John McKenzie.
Winsupply owns a majority equity stake in more than 630 Winsupply local companies in the U.S.
