Founded by Vic and Jack Winkle
in 1944, Winkle began as a
humble company built as an
electrical apparatus service shop
and manufacturer of heating
In 1992, Winkle was purchased
by Richard Teaberry and Larry
Teaberry Jr. In 2002, Winkle
expanded with the addition of
a distribution branch in Erie,
Pennsylvania. While much has
changed over the years, the basic
principles that the company was
founded on have not.
A big thank you to Leviton and Wittenstein for presenting at our
Lunch and Learn training sessions this last month. In order to better serve and educate our customers, Winkle employees gathered in the Larry A. Teaberry Sr. Technology Center to learn the newest products and updates from each manufacturer.
The Gray Market - Why Buy From an Authorized
When it comes to Allen-Bradley products, one thing is certain: you should always purchase them from your local authorized distributor. Unauthorized sources in the “Gray Market” are normally not trustworthy, resulting in inadequate products and services.

This March, the Winkle team was proud to support the Potential Development Program as a sponsor at their 10th Annual Mahoning Valley Pizza Cook-Off.

After many pizza tastings, Bruno Bros. Pizza, Belleria, Pizza Joe’s and Cocca’s Pizza were crowned the 2019 Pizza Cook-Off winners.
