PrimeSource Building Products, Inc., Carrollton, TX, distributor of building materials and construction fasteners, will buy Compass International Inc., distributor and originator of MARKER and DARTS fasteners.
Compass is headquartered in Anaheim, CA, with offices in Chicago, IL, Houston, TX, and Atlanta, GA.
PrimeSource is very pleased with this acquisition as it allows us to expand our already robust product offerings and consolidate them under the Pro-Twist brand. This deal will afford easy distribution of all current Compass International products through our local PrimeSource distribution centers located from coast-to-coast," says Ken Fishbein, Co-Chief Executive Officer of PrimeSource.
Compass International's MARKER family includes drywall, sheet metal, wood, cement, and multipurpose screws, as well as steel building fasteners and driver accessories. Other Compass brands include DARTS self-drilling screws, DECKMARKTM deck fasteners, and TAPMARKTM concrete accessories. The brand recognition associated with Markers and Darts will continue in conjunction with the Pro-Twist brand.
