ABC Supply, the largest LBM dealer in the U.S.,  today announced it acquired Western Roofing Supply, a roofing distributor in Minneapolis. The newly acquired location will become ABC Supply's fifth branch in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, and will sell windows, siding, and gutters.

"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," Jim Welch, vice president of ABC Supply's Midwest region, said.

The company's other Minnesota branches are in Coon Rapids, Maple Plain, and Savage.  

ABC Supply has been active this year, with acquisitions in Massachusetts, Iowa, New York, and two openings in Maryland and California.
