When designing a wood-framed floor system for residential projects, building to meet the applicable codes is only one step in the design process.
ABC Supply Acquires Chesapeake Siding and Roofing
Nation's largest wholesale roofing distributor adds locations in Virginia and North Carolina via move.
ABC Supply Co. Inc. has acquired Chesapeake Siding and Roofing, a wholesale distributor of exterior building products. The transaction includes two locations - one in Chesapeake, Va. and one in Jarvisburg, N.C.
ABC Supply is the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States and one of the nation's largest distributors of siding, windows and other select exterior building products.
"The acquisition of Chesapeake Siding and Roofing fits our strategy of providing accessible locations in all major geographic markets as we continue to build a national network of wholesale distribution centers for the professional contractor," said David Luck, chief executive officer and president of ABC Supply.
The former Chesapeake Siding and Roofing stores are located at 7349 Caratoke Hwy. in Jarvisburg and 1329 Victory Blvd. in Chesapeake.
As ABC Supply building material centers, the stores will serve residential and commercial construction professionals and carry a complete assortment of roofing materials, siding, insulation, windows, doors and related tools. They also will give area builders, remodeling contractors and specialty contractors access to ABC Supply's team of experts and a portfolio of services designed to meet their unique needs.
All 15 Chesapeake Siding and Roofing employees will be retained by ABC Supply.
"We are pleased to welcome them into the ABC Supply organization," Luck said. "We look forward to continuing to support area contractors by providing new products and the additional services they need to serve their customers and grow their businesses."
Later this year, both stores will be redesigned as Solution Centers, becoming premier destinations for product information and selection for contractors and their clients.
With the two new locations, ABC Supply has 18 branches in the Mid-Atlantic region, including two stores in Richmond, Va. and locations in Norfolk, Va. and Newport News, Va.
Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Beloit, Wis., ABC Supply operates nearly 380 branches in 46 states and the District of Columbia. The company has distinguished itself by following a single, simple guiding principle - take care of contractors better than any other distributor by understanding their businesses and offering products and services carefully selected to meet their unique needs.
