Coastal Construction Products, Jacksonville, Florida — an independent distributor of caulking and sealants, waterproofing, concrete restoration and firestopping materials in the U.S. — has reached an agreement to buy Sealant Engineering Construction Supply of Bensenville, Illinois. The expansion into the Chicago area marked the first acquisition outside of Coastal’s regional base in the Southeast.

“In 2018, we announced plans to expand our distribution platform geographically and Sealant Engineering Construction Supply is another step toward that goal,” said Coastal Construction Products CEO Martin S. Harrell.  “We cannot be more pleased to welcome them into the Coastal family.”

Sealant Engineering Construction Supply is a family-owned distributor of sealants and waterproofing that was founded in 1989. Under the leadership of second-generation owner Chris Heider, the company has grown and built a reputation for excellence with customers. Heider will join the team as Coastal expands into the Midwest.

“We know that Sealant Engineering shares our DNA in their relationships with employees, customers and suppliers,” said Harrell, “and they will serve as the hub for bringing exceptional products and service to the region.”

Coastal has been serving the construction community since 1975. The company currently has 16 stocking locations providing specialty construction products to customers throughout the Southeast as well as Latin America and the Caribbean.
