ABC Supply's Company Profile

ABC Supply Co., Inc. is the largest wholesale distributor of roofing and siding materials, tools, and supplies in the United States. Founded in 1982, ABC Supply currently has over 280 locations in 45 states. Specializing in select product lines, we offer the professional contractor (large or small) competitive pricing, superior pick-up and delivery service, and the highest quality building materials available.
Our Mission and Vision Since our founding in 1982, our mission has remained unchanged - make it easy for our customers. From the services we provide to the products we sell, we're committed to helping contractors succeed and grow their business. We fulfill that mission by:
  • Stocking the brands and products contractors want and need at a competitive price.
  • Maintaining a state-of-the-art delivery system that ensures orders are delivered to the job site when and where they are needed.
  • Actively listening to our customers to find out what they want and need, what we're doing well and how we can improve - and then implementing many of their suggestions.
  • Providing ongoing training for every ABC Supply associate, ensuring they have the knowledge and expertise they need to provide world-class customer service.
  • Training every ABC employee so they can provide contractors with the information and techniques they need to remain competitive.
  • Challenging our associates to set goals for themselves and creating an environment that helps them realize those dreams.
  • Judging our own success by the success of our customers. We know that we will only be successful when our customers are successful.
By staying true to this mission, we will realize our vision of being the supplier of choice for our contractor customers and being known as the greatest place to work in the United States.
"ABC's Vision is to become a world class service company as a specialty wholesale distributor of exterior building products."

Ken Hendricks's original vision in 1982 — taking care of the customer better than anyone else — has not changed. Because we have the greatest respect for the hard work that goes into the profession of being a roofing or siding contractor, a “go-the-extra-mile” attitude is an integral building block for our future success. As we change to meet the challenges of the future, we will not forget our roots — we have proven that we can accomplish what we promise.

We need to remember that a single person did not achieve all of ABC’s accomplishments — it takes a team with the same vision to reach these milestones, and ABC has developed a solid foundation for continued future success.
Community involvement has always been important to ABC Supply founders Ken and Diane Hendricks, and they've instilled that value in at ABC Supply, making volunteering and charitable support a vital part of our corporate culture. Whether volunterering for an after-school mentoring program, delivering Meals on Wheels, raising funds for the United Way or partnering with Habitat for Humanity, ABC Supply and its associates can be found making a difference in communities nationwide.
Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, ABC Supply Co. Inc. began with a single, simple dream: Take care of contractors better than any other distributor of exterior building products.

Ken Hendricks, company founder and CEO, spent his formative years learning the ins and outs of the roofing and siding businesses while working with his father. That experience prompted him to form his own roofing company. During the economic slowdown of 1982, Hendricks and his wife Diane took a risk and acquired three supply centers from Bird & Sons Inc. American Builders and Contractors Supply was born.

Over the next nearly quarter century, ABC Supply would grow rapidly by acquiring struggling distributors and opening new facilities. Expansion also included acquiring affiliate companies that produce some of the roofing, siding, windows and other products the company sells.

Today, ABC Supply has over 350 centers in 45 states and is one of the nation’s largest wholesale distributors of exterior building products. In 2006 it reached nearly $3 billion in sales and averaged a new store every one to two weeks. Along the way, the company reached many milestones.
