ABC Supply Adds New Locations

May 31, 2013

Building products distributor ABC Supply Co. Inc. has acquired the inventory and select equipment previously owned by JB Supply Co., a distributor of roofing, siding and other exterior building products in Flint, Mich.  The former JB Supply facility will operate as an ABC Supply branch.

It will be the distributor’s first facility in Flint and fills a geographic gap between its locations in Saginaw, Mich. to the northwest and the Detroit metropolitan market to the southeast, officials note.  The branch will continue to offer a variety of roofing products, as well as siding, gutters, windows and doors, in addition to complementary products and services.

“This acquisition gives us a presence in this part of the Flint/Tri-Cities region of Michigan for the first time,” says David Luck, ABC Supply CEO. “It continues our expansion in Michigan and builds on our acquisition earlier this year of Lee Wholesale Supply and its four locations in the Detroit market area, allowing us to provide more seamless service to contractors throughout this area of the state.”

ABC Supply Co. Inc. has also opened a new branch in Bergenfield, N.J., that will initially offer an assortment of roofing, siding and related tools and accessories. Windows will be added to the portfolio in the near future.

The branch is ABC Supply’s first in Bergen County, providing geographic coverage that will allow the company to serve an area of North Jersey that could not adequately be serviced by its other facilities in the market.  

“We’re excited to become part of the Bergenfield community and look forward to serving the contractors of Bergen County,” says Steve Kubicka, branch manager. “They’re familiar with ABC Supply from our other North Jersey locations and know they can count on ABC to get them the products they need when and where they need them. With a location right in Bergenfield, we’ll be able to serve them much more efficiently and effectively.”

The branch opened with eight employees. The facility includes more than 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor warehouse space, as well as a showroom for contractors and their clients.
