BELOIT, Wis., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Building products distributor ABC Supply Co., Inc. has acquired the distribution assets of Sellmore Industries, a distributor of steep-slope roofing, siding and windows with locations in Baltimore; Philadelphia; Buffalo, N.Y.; and Hagerstown, Md.

"These four new locations will expand and strengthen ABC Supply's existing presence in these markets," said Chief Executive Officer David Luck.

The family atmosphere that helped Sellmore Industries build a loyal customer following will remain unchanged, Luck added. "The core values that Sellmore Industries had – including taking care of the customer and having respect for contractors – are very similar to ABC's core values," he said. "It's a good cultural match."

As ABC Supply branches, the locations will continue to offer the products, brands and services customers had come to expect from Sellmore Industries, said ABC Supply's Vice President-Northeast Region Tom Kuchan.

Sellmore Industries' vinyl window manufacturing operation in Buffalo was not part of the acquisition and will continue functioning as a separate entity. ABC Supply will sell and promote its products.
