A need in the Community
Jim Winget and Jerry Trimbach noticed a need for a "distribution house" in Dayton, Ohio that would cater to the needs of contractors with integrity. To fulfill this need, they founded 2J Supply Company Inc. on March 1, 1962, at 2130 E. First Street, Dayton, Ohio. They even came up with the name 2J Supply Company since both of their names started with the letter "J".
In 1972, 2J Supply moved to a new location at 872 Valley Street in Dayton, Ohio, marking a new chapter in the company's story. During this exciting time, 2J Supply transitioned ownership from Jim and Jerry to Jerry and Charles Peffley. Charles quickly became an integral part of the 2J Supply team and contributed his expertise and hard work to the company's success for over a decade.
Greg Trimbach became the first of the second-generation owners to join the 2J Supply family. With his expertise in inventory management and dedication to expanding the brand offering, Greg helped the company grow and thrive.
Larry Trimbach, the second of the second-generation owners, happily joined the 2J Supply family. Alongside his brother Greg and their father Jerry, they worked together to take the company to new heights of growth and expansion.
1988 - 2000
2J Supply's growth from a single location on First Street to ten branches across Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia was fueled by a commitment to providing exceptional service to its customers. Through this focus on service, 2J Supply became a leading distributor of HVAC products, and this growth positioned them as a powerful leader in the industry. It's a testament to their dedication and hard work over the years.
2J Supply welcomed new leadership naming Kevin Trimbach and Jason Trimbach 3rd generation owners. With over 120 employees, the company is growing and prospering under their leadership. The 2J Supply team is proud to have such dedicated and talented individuals at the helm.
2J Supply made a great move in 2021! The Corporate Office and Dayton Branch moved to a new, bigger facility at 1456 N. Keowee Street, Dayton, Ohio. This new location allows us to better serve our customers and provides an even better experience for all who visit us. We're excited to continue to grow and improve in this new space!
2022 - 2023 & Beyond
