ABC Supply is the nation’s largest wholesale distributor of windows, roofing, siding and gutter materials. Revenue in 2015 was $5.9 billion. It employs 8,000 people.

  1. Awesome news! These companies keep so many people employed. My daughter in particular works for 84 Lumber/Savannah, GA as a kitchen and bath designer. She tells me it’s a great company to work for!
