Partnership brings complete line of Emerson ventilation products to supplier.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Through a new partnership, Johnstone Supply's national network of stores will offer the complete line of Emerson's ventilation products.

The Emerson products are currently showcased in the 2005 Johnstone catalog.

Emerson market-development managers are actively educating and training Johnstone staff and customers on the new line. The partnership is expected to pay additional dividends for both companies.

"This is great timing for both our companies, and we're proud to be partnering with Emerson Ventilation Products," said Monte Salsman, Johnstone Supply vice president of marketing. "It's a tremendous opportunity for both companies, with Johnstone giving Emerson national access and market penetration, and contractors nationwide benefiting from now having this highly regarded line available through Johnstone Supply. We think contractors are going to love this new line."

According to Johnstone Supply, the stores have stocked substantial inventory, and will be the first in the industry to offer Emerson's new industrial-circulator product line.
