Chicago-based L&W Supply Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Beloit-based ABC Supply Co., has acquired Tyngsboro, Massachusetts-based Dana Wallboard Supply, Inc. Terms of the deal, which closed Oct. 3, were not disclosed. Dana Wallboard Supply (DWS) is a leading supplier of wallboard and building materials to subcontractors in the New England region. The company primarily serves residential home builders. By acquiring DWS, L&W will add to its number of employees and strengthen its presence in New England. The location will be L&W’s second in Massachusetts. “With this acquisition, L&W Supply will enhance our service to our Boston-area customers and build deeper relationships with residential contractors and builders in New England,” said John McLaughlin, vice president of L&W Supply’s Northeast Region. “We are excited to welcome Dana Wallboard Supply associates to the L&W Supply family. Their commitment to customers over the past 47 years has made them a leader in the market.” DWS specializes in the sales and delivery of wallboard, plaster, and other building supplies to residential homebuilders and commercial builders. In addition to wallboard sales, the company uses a portion of its warehouse space for specialty tool sales. DWS specialty products include drywall and plastering tools, finishing products, and various goods to meet all subcontractors’ building needs. L&W Supply Corp. is one of the country’s largest distributors of wallboard, suspended ceiling systems, steel studs, joint treatment, insulation, fasteners and related building products.
