PrimeSource Building Products is purchasing the assets of All Island Exports, an independent wholesale distributor of building materials serving retailers throughout the Bahamas, West Indies, South and Central America.
All Island Exports is headquartered in Pompano Beach, Fla.
“This acquisition is an important step in PrimeSource’s growth and expansion into the global market,” said Ken Fishbein, co-CEO of PrimeSource.
“Retailers in these markets will now have more choices and easier access to the industry’s best products, plus the added value of superior customer service unmatched in the industry.”
All Island Exports currently distributes doors, windows, building materials, roofing materials, door hardware, plumbing supplies, paint sundries, lawn and garden supplies, tools and hardware, electrical and lighting supplies, as well as fasteners to the Bahamas, West Indies, and South and Central America.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Fishbein said customers of both PrimeSource and All Island Exports should expect normal business operations to continue through what is anticipated to be a seamless transaction. Existing All Island Exports customers will soon be able to purchase a larger assortment of building materials along with their usual orders.
PrimeSource describes itself as the largest purveyor of fasteners to the construction market and one of the largest distributors of building products in North America.
