The largest U.S. LBM dealer, ABC Supply, today announced its acquisition of Gilbert Supply, a single-location distributor of exterior building products located in Marcy, N.Y.

This is the first acquisition for ABC Supply in 2015, but likely not the last judging by the dealer's recent flurry of acquisitions in the Midwest and Northeast.

"The Utica/Marcy area is poised for growth," said Tom Kuchan, vice president of ABC Supply’s Northeast Region. “We look forward to being part of that growth by serving the area’s residential and commercial contractors. With the addition of a branch in Marcy, we will be able to meet their needs more effectively and efficiently,"

Anthony Wameling, former president and co-owner of Gilbert Supply is joining ABC Supply, and Vincent Conley, former Gilbert Supply vice president and co-owner, retired.
