Winnipeg Supply Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in Winnipeg Our story begins in 1904 in the heart of Winnipeg when Winnipeg Supply opened for business on the northeast corner of Portage Avenue and Main Street, one of Canada’s most celebrated intersections. It was a simple start to an enterprising journey that stretches over ten decades, four provinces, and the careers of thousands of Winnipeg Supply employees. The company has changed, but in many ways it remains the same. The Winnipeg Supply name has been associated with a myriad of resourceful endeavors – a limestone quarry in Alberta, coal mine in Saskatchewan, silica sand operation in Manitoba, and building supply business in Ontario – but the true spirit of the firm is found in the respect and recognition it receives at home. Here, in the hearts of Winnipeggers, Winnipeg Supply continues to stand for the time-honoured certainty of trusted service. On March 6th, 1904, Winnipeg Supply Company Limited opened its first office at 349 Main Street and offered contractors and homeowners a wide variety of fuel supplies and building materials. By the time Winnipeg Supply celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1929, the company had partnered with the Western Gem Mine in Drumheller, Alberta and purchased a limestone operation in Moosehorn, Manitoba and was well established as one of the city’s premier purveyors of heating fuel, lime products, and building supplies. After navigating the Great Depression and actually expanding post-World War II, Winnipeg Supply moved into real estate development and built several suburban housing projects, including the neighbourhoods of Westwood, Westdale, Victoria Park, Glendale Park, and Tuxedo Park. In 1961, Winnipeg Supply became a publicly traded company. By the end of the decade, the company was known as a respected fuel dealer, building materials retailer, heating service supplier, influential land developer, and business leader.
