BELOIT, Wis.—June 25, 2018—When Ken and Diane Hendricks founded ABC Supply Co. Inc. in 1982, it was with a dream of putting contractors first, treating them with respect and giving them access to the products, service, and expertise they need to succeed. Each year, ABC Supply recognizes associates who best exemplify this commitment and the company’s seven guiding Core Values with its most prestigious honor: the Ken Hendricks Award, created in honor of the company’s co-founder.
The 2018 award recipients are Tony Schalliol, managing partner of ABC Supply’s Durham, North Carolina, location and Joe Cox, managing partner of ABC Supply’s Camden, New Jersey, branch. They were recognized at the company’s annual Founders’ Celebration picnic on June 21 at ABC Supply’s National Support Center in Beloit, Wisconsin.

We’re so glad they are part of our ABC Supply family.”
