About Us

Automated Water Metering EquipmentG&C Supply Co., Inc. was founded in 1974 and has long been a leader in wholesale distribution. It began as G&C Waterworks as Bill Greenway, wife Kay and one employee operated from a small building that remains the heart of the business today. Since the beginning, we have grown from those original 3 employees to a total staff of 67 and from the original 450 square feet to well over 60,000 square feet of warehouse space today. In 1985, Mr. Greenway added natural gas supplies to the water and sewer product lines. In 1989 he added the Sign & Safety Division. As a result of these changes, Mr. Greenway changed the company name to its current designation, G&C Supply Co., Inc. In 2001, Mr. Greenway felt G&C could be even more diversified by adding the Fire, Rescue and Safety Equipment Sales and Service Division. We currently service the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois and Missouri from our single warehouse location in Atwood, TN.

On July 12, 2002, Mr. Bill Greenway passed away leaving his wife, Mrs. Kay Greenway as the major stockholder. Ms. Kay passed her title of sec./treas. to their elder daughter, Gina Burton and assumed the title of president. Another daughter, Pam Dowdy, is also employed by G&C. It should be noted that Mrs. Greenway and both daughters have been actively engaged in management of the company for many years prior to Mr. Greenway’s demise.

In April of 2011 Mrs. Greenway sold the company to long time employee Mr. Jimmy Halford. Mr. Halford is dedicated to keeping G&C Supply Company, Inc. in the tradition set by Mr. & Mrs. Greenway. We’re not changing the WAY we do business, just striving to improve it.

G&C has inside as well as outside sales personnel specifically assigned to both divisions Water, Sewer and Gas and Signs and Safety. We have found that doing so affords us the ability to better serve our customers as well as allowing us to approach potential sales in each division with equal enthusiasm and determination. In addition, we also employ the method of assigning inside salespersons to territories so that we can better establish and nurture customer relations.

On October 1, 2014 the announcement was made that G&C Supply, Inc. had acquired Coleman Enterprises in Dandridge, TN. This acquisition was a well thought out plan to better serve our loyal East Tennessee customers more efficiently. The original Coleman Enterprises staff remained in place for the reason of uninterrupted continuity. Jim Halford, Mr. Hanford's son, moved to Dandridge to serve as manager of that facility.

I suppose that to sum up the nature of G&C is best said by stating that we do things the old fashioned way, we offer our customers what they want, for an affordable price and delivery that meets their needs. Our motto was and is Striving To Serve.
