Web Order Entry Upgrade

After many years we found ourselves overdue for a big upgrade to our legacy web portal. The good news is we are now ready to begin transitioning to the new feature rich version. In addition to real time price/availability, ordering and order history we have added much more. There are so many features they are hard to list but include the following:

  • Autofill Searching
  • 360° Views
  • Detailed Specifications
  • AHRI System Selector
  • Improved Product Lists
  • Intuitive Drill To Products
  • Much More!

On the left you will find the new order online link right above our old old legacy link. Your login credentials will work with either link, but the layout of the new portal and ordering will look different/new. You may be requested to enter in your zipcode and choose the Johnstone Supply branch you do most of your interactions with. The new system will win you over fast.  Some of you may already have been moved over or have only ever used the new portal. If so, this change will not affect you.  Early next year our old legacy method will be shut down in favor of the new.  Give it a try and let us know what you think. If you have questions you can contact or anyone at Johnstone Supply.

New R4.0 GelBlack and TwinGel Line Sets

As you know, the new mechanical code requires R4.0 insulation on all split system line sets. In response to this change we have decided to stock the new GelBlack line sets. In addition to meeting the new R4.0 code requirement these line sets feature a new tear resistant GelBlack insulation that is UV resistant making it easier to install. They come packaged in bags which take up less space and less waste on the job site.  The ends are a flat crimp ensuring the line set is clean inside every time.  The GelBlack comes in 25′, 35’, & 50’ lengths.


We are also stocking the new (50’ only)  TwinGel white minisplit R4.0 line sets. The TwinGel insulation is fused together making minisplit installation much easier.  It is also tear and UV resistant.

New Phone System

To better serve our customers we recently transitioned to a new phone system that interconnects all 8 branches. Just dial 2 for sales and you are connected with the branch you dialed! For faster service dial 3 and the first person in our other branches will help you.The new system is helping us improve customer service at many levels.  . Thank you!

Welcome South Bend and Elkhart Branches!

indianaEffective January 1, 2017 the existing South Bend and Elkhart, IN Johnstone branches joined the Muskegon group. This brought the group total to 8 stores in Western Michigan and Northern Indiana. Former South Bend owner Andy Peck will continue to work with the stores in 2017 to ensure a smooth transition but will then change his focus onto other future endeavors. You can expect to see the same team members you have come to know as well as their high level of customer service. The entire Muskegon team welcomes South Bend and Elkhart employees to our team!

In addition to all that Johnstone Supply offers, the South Bend group brings to Muskegon added knowledge, product and expertise in refrigeration and commercial products. Muskegon in turn brings updated computer technology, rf bar-coding and several added product lines to South Bend. Customers can also expect to see enhanced deliveries and services once the transition is complete.

Let us know if you have any questions.
