About Wholesale Heating Supply
Wholesale Heating Supply is a third-generation, family-owned company that has been in business since 1975. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality HVAC products to our customers. Throughout our tenure in the industry, we have maintained our commitment to excellence in customer service by treating each customer and employee as a valued member of the WHS family. We know our customers’ needs, and our goal is to provide the products along with the highest quality service to meet those needs. We believe our success in this mission is precisely why we have customers who have been with us since our company’s inception.
Frank L. Waldron, the current owners’ father, began his HVAC career soon after his service in the Marines had been completed. He began by filling warehouse orders for a local heating/cooling distributor. Eager to learn all aspects of the business, Frank soon moved behind the counter and eventually served in a variety of positions while gaining expertise and understanding of the industry. His strong work ethic, problem solving skills, and ability to learn quickly allowed him to fully operate the business for over ten years.
After diligently working for other HVAC distributors, Frank was ready to branch out on his own. In 1974, Frank and his wife, Celise, met Chuck Dill, the owner of Wholesale Heating Supply located in Pontiac, Michigan. Through their productive conversations, they were given the opportunity to acquire WHS. Frank was finally going to be able to apply his know-how to owning and operating his own business. The only caveat that the seller required was that WHS always remained a family business. That condition has been at the forefront of our mission and has been a closely held commitment in our hearts ever since.
Frank’s drive and determination continued throughout the course of his career as he doubled, then tripled sales year after year. After close to five decades in business, WHS has four locations that serve over 700 contractors throughout southeast Michigan. His five daughters continue to own the company and serve as the Board of Directors, and his grandson, Steve Sweeney is leading WHS as the company’s CEO.
Wholesale Heating Supply is still a family-owned business. Frank’s legacy has been passed down to a third generation of family members who endeavor to uphold established standards of excellence in operating the company today and into its future.
