Benoist Brothers was established in Mount Vernon, IL in 1928 by 3 brothers: Ray, Roy and Charlie Benoist. Before Benoist Brothers sold HVAC equipment, the company built and sold coal furnaces. Charlie had a son, Albert, who became the second president of Benoist Brothers. He worked for 30 years and never fully retired. Albert’s son, Jack Benoist, joined the business in 1974 and served as president and CEO from 1987 until 2015. The company remains family-owned by the Benoist’s to this day.
Over the years Benoist Brothers has expanded to 10 stores located in Mt. Vernon, IL; Jackson, MO; Belleville, IL; Evansville, IN; Fenton, MO; Owensboro, KY; Union City, TN; Paducah, KY; Springfield, IL; and Earth City, MO. In 2018 Benoist acquired NuComfort Supply in Chicago, adding stores in Glendale Heights, Chicago, and Crestwood, IL.
JPL was pleased to become a key supplier to Benoist in February 2019. JPL currently ships 8 of their 10 locations. JPL’s Denver plant supplies their stores in Missouri and JPL’s Knoxville plant supplies all the other Benoist stores. Benoist Brothers stocks and sells most of JPL’s product offering including MHP25R4.2B, MHP25R6B, MHP25R8B, PR25R4.2B and Thermal Sleeves MT05R6.
Kurt Govero (JPL’s Central Territory Sales representative) did a great job bringing Benoist Bros. onboard and continues to help & support the Benoist stores to further expand their JPL Flex Duct & Thermal Sleeves business.
