ABC Supply acquires Minneapolis roofing distributor

Beloit-based ABC Supply Co. has acquired the assets of Minneapolis-based roofing supply distributor Western Roofing Supply Co. Inc.

ABC Supply is the country’s largest wholesale roofing distributor, and also one of the largest suppliers of siding, windows and other exterior building products. It was founded in 1982 and has more than 490 branches across the country.

Western Roofing Supply was founded in 1923 and supplies contractors with roofing materials for residential, commercial and industrial applications. Its facility will become the fifth branch of ABC Supply in the Twin Cities market. The Western Roofing branch will soon begin offering windows, siding and gutters.

The location of the Western Roofing distribution facility complement’s ABC Supply’s existing St. Paul, Coon Rapids, Maple Plain and Savage locations.

“It will allow us to provide more seamless service to contractors working in the central part of the metropolitan area, giving them convenient access to the products and support they need,” said Jim Welch, vice president of ABC Supply’s Midwest region.
