PEWAUKEE, Wis. (Jan. 4, 2022) The Gustave A. Larson Company - the Midwest, Plains and Mountain states leading wholesale distributor of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration products - announced that it closed on the purchase of Progress Supply, Inc. (PSI), on December 17, 2021.
 
Progress Supply is a long-time established and successful multi-location HVAC and Refrigeration distribution company in central and southwestern Ohio, southeast Indiana, and northern Kentucky.

Gustave A. Larson Company thanks Progress Supply's owners, Mark and K.C. Faessler, for growing a successful business with great customer relationships.

Gary Sparks, who has been the President of Progress Supply for the last 10 years, will become Vice President/General Manager of Progress Supply, Inc., A Gustave A. Larson Company.

“This acquisition increases our presence in Ohio and Kentucky and means that we can now support more contractors in these areas with our extensive inventory and dedicated customer service.
