Allnet Distributing says their new location will be 7,000 sq.ft. and will include self-shop and will-call areas. Also, as is consistent with the company’s history of advanced dealer support, will include a large training facility.

Allnet founder Wally Whinna is well-known in the industry as one of the founding partners of AVAD – who was bought out by Ingram Micro as part of their acquisition of the industry leading specialty distributor. After leaving AVAD, Whinna busied himself by building Allnet Distributing as a prominent distributor in Chicago and, now, throughout the region.

Location ‘Pressure Tested’

“This location is pressure tested and we are anticipating tremendous sales with a great capacity for servicing dealers in this area,” said Wally Whinna, principal of Allnet Distributing, referring to his familiarity with the specific area where the new Allnet Distributing facility is located.
