Chicago-based L&W Supply Corporation, a distributor of building materials and specialty products has acquired the Merrimack Building Supply, a building materials distributor with locations in southern New England.
Founded in 1985, Merrimack started as a drywall distributor but has grown to service residential and commercial markets with products including acoustical ceilings, insulation, exterior finishes, steel framing and related products. L&W Supply will continue to service customers from the three former Merrimack locations in Merrimack, NH; Medway, Massachusetts; and Stratford, Connecticut. L&W Supply says the acquisition will increase its team of experienced associates and strengthen its presence in the New England market.
“We are excited to welcome the Merrimack Building Supply associates to the L&W Supply family. Over the past 35 years, the Merrimack team has built strong relationships with contractors in the greater New England area,” said John McLaughlin, vice president of L&W Supply’s Northeast Region. “We look forward to continuing to support their contractor customers. These locations improve our local footprint and will allow us to strengthen our relationships with area contractors.”
