BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Birmingham-based Ram Tool Construction Supply Co. today announced that it has acquired Atlanta-based Total Building Supplies, a construction supply distribution company that focuses on selling to multifamily projects. Total Building Supplies operates branches in Atlanta and Jacksonville, FL.
"The Total Building Supplies team is dedicated to the same things we are: relationship building, sense of urgency, and focus on customer service," stated Page Naftel, president of Ram Tool. "By combining our businesses we are now able to serve not only the general contractor who's working on commercial projects, which is Ram Tool's forte, but customers working on multifamily projects as well, which is where TBS's strength lies."
In addition to providing Ram Tool with an entrance into the multifamily market, the acquisition also expands Ram Tool's footprint into the Jacksonville market, adding to the rapid growth it has seen in recent years in Florida. In 2015 Ram Tool acquired Jim & Slims in Largo and followed up with a greenfield branch in Tampa. Then in December 2016 the company opened another greenfield branch in Orlando.
"We're very excited to be in Jacksonville," continued Mr. Naftel. "We've seen in recent years how active the Northern and Central Florida markets are and we've had a lot of success there. We see Jacksonville as a natural extension of that success."
