NEW LENOX, IL — Munch’s Supply (the “Company”), a leading Midwest-based heating, ventilation and air conditioning (“HVAC”) distributor has acquired T.A. Gentry Supply, Inc., including its three branches servicing Lansing, Kalamazoo and Holland, Michigan. This will expand the Company’s geographic footprint to 70 locations serving 17 states and one Canadian province.

“The T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. acquisition is part of our long-term strategy to expand into the plumbing segment in the Michigan market. The company will continue to operate under the T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. name and its three locations will nicely complement our HVAC offerings in our eight Munch and Tommark locations,” said Bob Munch.

“We couldn’t have made it 50 years without the tremendous support from our customers and team members. I am very happy to find a trusted company like Munch’s to continue the T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. legacy,” said T.A. Gentry Supply Inc. President Patrick Gentry.

“With the help of dedicated staff and a great culture, Patrick and his family have done a wonderful job growing the company. We are excited to build on the tremendous foundation that they have established,” added Munch.

“We are fortunate to have found a like-minded partner in Munch’s Supply. We look forward to working with the Munch’s Supply and Tommark teams to serve an even broader base in the home services marketplace in Michigan,” added Gentry. 

The acquisition demonstrates Munch’s ongoing dedication to the HVAC and plumbing marketplace and reinforces its commitment to partnering with family and customer-service focused businesses looking for either a long-term partnership or an exit strategy.

Munch’s Supply has been operating in the Chicagoland area for more than 65 years and is consistently ranked as a top 10 HVAC distributor in the United States. Marcone, a leading distributor of home appliance, HVAC and plumbing repair parts and equipment across North America acquired Munch’s Supply, LLC in 2021, and strives to become the hub for parts and services to the home.
