PITTSBURGH - Johnstone Supply has been authorized by Emerson Climate Technologies as a full-line wholesale distributor in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.

Johnstone, a national distributor of HVACR products with over 270 locally owned branches, is owned and operated in the Pittsburgh area by Russ and Cheri Stockhausen. There are five Johnstone Pennsylvania branches operating in the Monroeville, Bethel Park, Butler, North Hills and Monaca markets.

A new branch opened in October in downtown Pittsburgh, at a former Pameco branch. The new location will be stocked with Emerson Climate Technologies' product lines.
