Home businesses weren’t as common in 1961 as they are today, but that didn’t stop Howard and Verna Wohlscheid from starting Municipal Supply Company
that way, and the company is now celebrating its 50th year in business with the launch of a new website.
Municipal Supply moved to its current location on Industrial Drive in 1977. The company sells water and sewer materials to cities and contractors with an emphasis on excellent customer service.
“In starting our new website, we feel we are getting our name out there to more and more people,” says Brian Wohlscheid, President of Municipal Supply Co. “We feel that in launching this website, we are staying on top of the technology available to us.”
Municipal Supply worked with the Center for Business Innovation
and Spring Arbor University on the new site. The university used the site as a teaching opportunity for students.
“It was a positive experience for all of us,” says Wohlscheid. “We appreciated all of the input and hard work that each of the students did.”
The goal of the new website is to enhance communication with customers through announcing product promotions and news in the municipality industry.
“We especially wanted to have a place to share our story and for customers to learn more about who we are as an organization,” Wohlscheid.
Municipal Supply Company has grown to six full time employees. According to Wohlscheid, the company’s goal is to continue with their practice of great customer service connecting directly with customers.
