ABC Supply, the largest LBM dealer in the U.S., today announced the acquisition of Rome Building Products, a distributor located in Worcester, Mass. The newly-acquired distributor will become ABC's second branch in Worcester.

"Rome Building Products is a well-respected company with a talented team and a strong presence as a supplier of windows and siding," said Tom Kuchan, vice president of ABC Supply’s northeast region, in a press release. "This addition to the ABC family will complement our product offering in this market and expand our ability to serve contractors in these categories."

As part of the acquisition, former Rome Building Products owner Howard Witkes will retire. In turn, ABC Supply appointed Dave Porter as the new location's branch manager.
