ABC to open in La Crosse, Wis.
In La Crosse, Wis., Garrett Meyer was named as branch manager of ABC Supply’s newest location.
The building products distributor will open officially on Feb. 17 at 2325 Enterprise Ave., in La Crosse.
The branch will offer steep-slope and low-slope roofing products and systems, siding, gutter, windows, doors and related products and services.
Beloit, Wis.-based ABC Supply had a temporary location in La Crosse following a storm in 2011 and has been working to establish a permanent location in the area since then, said Wisconsin district manager Jeff Ploch. In the meantime, the company has served area contractors from its branches in Baraboo, Wis., and Chippewa Falls, Wis.
“We’re excited to become a permanent part of the La Crosse community,” Ploch said. “We look forward to strengthening our relationships with the area’s contractors and giving them the high level of service they expect."
