ABC Supply Co. Inc. is relocating one of its two Fort Lauderdale, Fla., branches to Pompano Beach, Fla. The new, larger facility will incorporate the company’s new Solution Center showroom design and feature a wider array of exterior building products, including windows and doors.

“The new facility will be much more convenient for contractors and will help us serve them more efficiently,” says Ken Dunn, branch manager. “There will be more parking. The yard will be 40 percent larger, giving us much more staging and loading space and providing easier access for trucks. We’ll have an additional loading dock for customers, allowing them to quickly pull in, have their trucks loaded, and then get back on the road. We’ll also have added capacity for our own trucks, making our deliveries more efficient.”

Inside the facility, the 5,000-square-foot showroom features an innovative use of a specially designed “wing panel” system designed to put information at customers’ fingertips.  “Contractors will be able to bring their customers to the Solution Center to select their roofing, windows, siding or other products,” Dunn says. “The wing panels and other displays will make it easy for them to show the end user the various options and what’s new in the industry.”
