BELOIT, Wis. — The nation’s largest wholesale distributor of exterior building products, ABC Supply Co. Inc., has opened a branch at 1050 S. 96th St. in Seattle to benefit local professional roofing contractors.  

This location will offer contractors access to an extensive selection of exterior building products, supplies and tools as well as a team of associates with the industry expertise needed to help contractors tackle their business challenges. Andrew Matthews will manage the branch.  

Matthews joined ABC Supply’s Jacksonville, Fla., branch on Lane Avenue North in 2014 after graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder. At the Jacksonville branch, Matthews held a variety of positions including inside sales and outside sales. In 2015, he transferred to the Jacksonville store on Phillips Highway where he held both inside and outside sales positions. In these roles, he was responsible for helping customers identify and order the right materials for their jobs and rolling out new resources to local contractors—such as ABC Connect and the Freedom Programs

As manager, Matthews will excel at developing strong and lasting relationships with contractors in the Seattle area.  

“ABC Supply’s focus has always been on what we can do to make our customers’ jobs easier and help them be successful, and Andrew and his team embrace this mission wholeheartedly,” said Matt Cooper, vice president of ABC Supply’s West Region. “They are excited to get to know Seattle’s contractors and their individual needs, and then deploy their expertise—as well as ABC Supply’s high-quality products, resources and programs—to help them achieve their goals.”  

Branch hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. PDT, Monday through Friday. The phone number is (206) 763-3685.
