BERLIN, Conn. - ABC Supply Co. Inc.’s Berlin, Conn. branch is moving to a new location on Berlin Turnpike, making it easier for area contractors to get the exterior building products they need.

The store will move from 61 Massirio Drive, where it has been located since 1997, to 554 Berlin Turnpike. The new store will open May 16.

ABC Supply is the nation’s 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.

The Berlin branch will continue to carry a complete assortment of commercial and residential roofing materials, windows, vinyl siding, decking, and the tools and equipment contractors need. In addition, the branch will continue to give area builders, remodeling contractors and specialty contractor’s access to a team of experts and a portfolio of services designed to meet their unique needs.

The new facility will include two buildings with more than 67,000 square feet of showroom and warehouse space, 12 loading docks and six drive-in doors.

“The new facility will be much more convenient for contractors,” branch manager Steve Parker, Jr. said. “We’ll be right on the Turnpike, Routes 5 and 15, giving contactors easy-in/easy-out access. And we’ll have two more overhead doors, allowing contractors to quickly pull in, have their trucks loaded, and then get back on the road to the job site.”

The 2,200-square-foot Solution Center will be a premier destination for product information and selection for contractors and their clients. It will feature an innovative use of a specially designed “wing panel” system that literally puts information at customers’ fingertips, allowing them to quickly understand key features and benefits and make comparisons among different product lines and different manufacturers’ offerings. It also will incorporate a storage system that organizes product sample boards so contractors can quickly find and take with them the samples they need to assist their customers with product selection outside the Solution Center.

The branch’s phone number will remain unchanged at (860) 828-5100. For more information, visit www.abcsupply.com.
