Construction Supply Group has completed the acquisition of Constar Construction Supply, a Californian supply distributor.

Construction Supply Group is a leader in the distribution of construction materials, accessories and tools, primarily for professional concrete and masonry contractors in the United States and Canada. The combined company has 87 branches with over 1,150 employees and offers over 70,000 SKUs to nearly 25,000 customers.

Constar Construction Supply is the tenth acquisition for the Construction Supply platform. In late 2016, the acquisitions of Brock White Company, LLC, Border Construction Specialties, LLC and Stetson Building Products formed Construction Supply Group. The company later executed a carve-out of five Gerdau distribution branches and the acquisitions of Carter Waters and Brock White of Wisconsin, extending its footprint throughout the Midwest.

In the first half of 2018, CSG expanded in the South and in Canada through the acquisitions of Zia Concrete Supply, Williams Equipment & Supply, and Richform Construction Supply. Following the transaction, Constar Construction Supply will be integrated into the CSG's Southwestern business unit, Border Construction Specialties.

Brian Saker, President of Border Construction Specialties said: “We are proud to partner with Constar Construction Supply and expand our footprint in the West and Southwestern U.S.  The expansion into contiguous states is exciting for our customer base and our strategic growth plans. We look forward to continued success with the entire Constar team.”

Mitch Williams, CEO of Construction Supply Group commented: “This acquisition furthers our goal of building a best-in-class wholesale distribution company across North America.”

CSG will continue to seek further additions to add to its family of construction distribution businesses.
