Bradco Supply announced that it has acquired Carlson Distributors Inc. of Rockford, Ill. Carlson has served the entire Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin area since 1947, providing local contractors with a wide variety of building materials including doors and windows.

Although the company will change its name to Bradco Supply, it will continue to operate from its facility at 2501 Charles Street. Tom Healy, who has worked for Bradco for more than 14 years, will serve as head of this newest location.

“Because the Carlson family operated under much the same philosophy of superior customer service and knowledgeable staff, the Carlson business was a perfect match for Bradco,” said Martin Segal, vice president of acquisitions for Bradco Supply. “Over the years, Bradco has remained focused on growth and building our business for the long-term, and we will continue to capitalize on our leading market positions and strong balance sheet to strengthen our presence in the Midwest market.”
