About Makdad Supply Company, Inc.

After World War II, Charlie Makdad began his career as a refrigeration mechanic at Altoona’s Sealtest Dairy. Realizing that the new technologies of mechanical refrigeration and air conditioning were the wave of the future, he purchased the Allen Supply Co. in 1948 and built it into a valued partner for area contractors.

Charlie’s son Jack, a former Navy pilot, has run the family business since 1994. Six decades after its founding, Makdad Supply Company operates six convenient Central Pennsylvania locations and is a founding member of the industry-leading BlueHawk Cooperative, which has more than 240 firms in over 1,300 locations in all 50 states purchasing over $5 billion annually.

In addition to providing customers with fast access to more than 22,000 in-stock parts and supplies, award-winning Makdad offers in-house training classes so clients can keep up to date on the latest industry techniques. Through this dedication to innovation and service, we promise to help our clients grow their businesses for the next 60 years…and beyond.
