Top Notch Distributors, based in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, with locations in Earth City, Missouri and Carson City, Nevada has acquired Boyle & Chase Inc., based in Hingham, Massachusetts, the company announced Monday. The acquisition was effective December 15, 2015.
“We’re excited about the acquisition of Boyle & Chase and the value that it brings to customers for both companies,” said Dave Prouty, President, Top Notch Distributors. “This acquisition brings together two outstanding companies. Together, we will be able to better serve customers through the opportunity of increased inventory, enhanced turn-around on deliveries and the same outstanding, quality service that customers have come to expect from both companies.”
Boyle & Chase, a distributor for 20 major lines of commercial and decorative hardware has been operating for more than 60 years. Top Notch Distributors has been distributing architectural door hardware since 1975 with a focus on residential, commercial and electronic access control products, parts and accessories.
“I’m so proud of the growth and quality operation of Boyle & Chase over our many decades of operation,” said Mike Rotondi, President, Boyle & Chase. “Being acquired by such a wonderful organization as Top Notch assures that our customers will continue to receive outstanding service, broader stock offerings and enhanced efficiencies. Our employees will combine with those of Top Notch to be part of a dynamic company with many opportunities for growth. As I move forward and eventually towards retirement, I’m thrilled to be able to have our employees be part of the best organization of its kind that I’ve seen in my 45 years – they are in the best hands that I can leave them, which is so important to me.”
At this time, both companies will continue their day-to-day operations with no anticipated changes in the immediate future.
