Distributor Adds Satellite Location in Nashville, Tenn.

BELOIT, Wis. – Building products distributor ABC Supply Co., Inc. has acquired the assets of American Wholesale Building Supply Co., a distributor of siding and windows with a single location at 714 Massman Drive in Nashville, Tenn.

The branch will operate as a satellite location of ABC Supply’s existing Nashville branch, situated less than one mile away at 1818 Elm Hill Pike. It will continue selling siding, windows and related products, while the existing branch will focus on selling steep-slope and low-slope roofing and related products.

“New residential construction has rebounded strongly in Nashville this year, and adding this new facility will allow us to better support these customers with their siding needs,” said Jim Kaufmann, vice president of ABC Supply’s Southeast Region. “Having a satellite location dedicated to siding and windows will equip us to give these customers the specialized services they expect. It will also free up capacity in our existing branch, allowing us to more effectively and efficiently meet the needs of our roofing customers.”
