Who We Are
Minvalco Inc. is one of the largest HVAC/R controls distributors in the upper Midwest. Founded in 1965 by Herbert C. Lindstrom, Minvalco grew from a one-man operation into one of the country's most respected names. Today, Mary Delmore continues her father's tradition of excellence by supplying industrial, mechanical, and control contractors with incredible product selection, unbeatable on-hand inventory, competitive prices, and expert support. We have built a reputation on creating relationships with our customers from the moment they request a product from us to the finishing touches they put on a job. When you choose Minvalco, you are choosing a partner who will be with you every step of the way.
Best of Both Worlds
Family-run since its inception, Minvalco offers you the care and expertise of a local business with the national affiliation, parts selection, and prices of a national company. As a member of Control Group North America, we are joined with a network of distributors nationwide, enabling us to leverage volume buying power and industry know-how into competitive pricing and unbeatable product availability.
When Herbert C. Lindstrom founded Minvalco, his wife created the company's name from all the products we offered: meters, instruments, valves, and controls. Nearly forty years later, Minvalco continues to expand and improve our comprehensive product selection, making us a true one-stop shop for all your HVAC/R residential, commercial, and systems control needs. From compressors to high-end DDC system controls and every part in between, Minvalco is fully stocked with over 300,000 products from the industry's leading names. And we've earned a reputation as the hard-to-find parts distributor, keeping specialty products on shelves so they are ready when you need them.
