ABC Supply Co. Inc. has finalized its purchase of Bradco Supply Corp. The acquisition of Avenel, N.J.-based Bradco is the largest in ABC Supply’s history and adds 129 locations in 30 states to the ABC Supply roster.

With these additions, ABC Supply now has 479 locations in 44 states and the District of Columbia, and sales of more than $4 billion. The company is the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States, it reports, and one of the nation’s largest distributors of siding, windows and other select exterior building products.

“We are working hard to ensure a smooth transition for our associates and customers alike,” says David Luck, ABC president and CEO. “We are looking forward to sharing ABC Supply’s residential strength with Bradco and having Bradco share their commercial strength with ABC Supply. We believe that the combined company gives us a more balanced product and service offering for our customers.”

“We are excited to begin this new chapter in our history,” adds Diane Hendricks, ABC Supply’s owner, co-founder and chairman. “ABC Supply and Bradco share a commitment to serving professional contractors. That focus makes our combined organizations a great fit, and we’re confident that, together, our two companies will create enhanced opportunities for our associates and bring new benefits to our customers.”
