Birmingham-based Ram Tool Construction Supply Co. says it has acquired Total Building Supplies, a construction supply distribution company that focuses on selling to multifamily projects. Total Building Supplies operates a branch in Jacksonville FL, as well as in its Atlanta, GA headquarters.
In addition to providing Ram Tool with an entrance into the multifamily market, the acquisition also expands Ram Tool’s footprint into the Jacksonville market, adding to the rapid growth it has seen in recent years in Florida. In 2015 Ram Tool acquired Jim & Slims in Largo and followed up with a greenfield branch in Tampa. Then in December 2016 the company opened another greenfield branch in Orlando.
“We’re very excited to be in Jacksonville,” Ram Tool president Page Naftel said in a news release. “We’ve seen in recent years how active the Northern and Central Florida markets are and we’ve had a lot of success there. We see Jacksonville as a natural extension of that success.”
