BELOIT, Wisconsin — Building products distributor ABC Supply Co., Inc., has acquired Standard Roofings, Inc., dba, The Standard Group, New Jersey’s largest independent distributor of roofing materials and other exterior building products, with stores in Trenton, Morristown, Toms River, Tinton Falls and Manahawkin.
The Standard Group, which was founded by Robert Higginson in 1933, has its roots in a company founded by Robert’s grandfather in the late 1800s in Long Branch, New Jersey — Robert Higginson & Son Coal, Lumber and Building Materials.
“The Standard Group is a long-established and highly regarded distributor of building products in the New Jersey market,” said Keith Rozolis, president and chief executive officer of ABC Supply. “We are very excited to have this team, with their ‘Yes is our Standard answer’ attitude, join ABC Supply.”
The addition of The Standard Group locations enhances ABC Supply’s presence in New Jersey, where the company already operates 15 branches.
ABC Supply is the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States and one of the nation’s largest distributors of siding, windows and other select exterior building products. Since its founding by Ken and Diane Hendricks in 1982, ABC Supply’s sole focus has been serving professional contractors — taking care of them better than any other distributor and offering the products, services and support they need to build their businesses. It accomplishes this by being an “employee-first” company that treats its associates with respect and gives them the tools they need to succeed.
With headquarters in Beloit, Wisconsin, ABC Supply has more than 460 branches nationwide. It is an eight-time winner of the Gallup Great Workplace Award. More information is available at www.abcsupply.com.
