During the 1940’s John W. Jennings and Jack Dill, Sr., believed that technological advances were creating the need for a new type of contractor in the South— a contractor specializing in the installation of heating, air conditioning, and process piping systems in homes, businesses, and industrial plants throughout the Southeast.
John Jennings and Jack Dill, Sr., opened Super Supply Company in 1947 and after a decade of rapid growth, recognized the demand for qualified Mechanical Contractors in the growing commercial and industrial markets of the Southeast. And with a name change to Jennings-Dill, Inc. Mechanical Contractors, we expanded our services and market areas.
Jack Dill, Jr., joined the company in 1965, and brought with him uncompromising integrity, demand for the highest level of quality, and the ability to develop and maintain relationships. As a Clemson graduate in Mechanical Engineering and a registered P.E., Jack’s professional knowledge and experience provided guidance that grew the company and earned Jennings-Dill an outstanding reputation in the industry. Under Jack Dill, Jr.’s leadership as President, Jennings-Dill expanded to specialize in air conditioning/heating installation, plumbing, piping, metal fabrication, and millwright work, and employed over 175 employees.
With over 50 years of experience in the industry, Jack Dill, Jr., continues to provide leadership as CEO and Chairman of the Board and continues to advise, support, and contribute to the engineering efforts of the corporation.
