When it comes to social media, the building industry as a whole has been fairly slow to recognize the impact of this effective marketing tool. Findings and best practices show that one of the best ways to connect with your B2B or B2C audience is through meeting them where they’re at—social media.

“This acquisition allows L&W Supply to enhance our services to contractors in the central Ohio area and introduce L&W Supply to new customers in the Akron area,” said John McLaughlin, vice president of L&W Supply’s Northeast Region. “The experience of the American Building Materials team will be a great asset to us, and we are excited to welcome their associates to the L&W Supply family.”

Headquartered in Chicago, L&W Supply operates over 200 branches in 40 states.
