The addition of D’Angelo Co. will strengthen Core & Main’s presence in Southern California, with locations in La Habra, Beaumont and Lakeside, and enhance services provided to its combined customers, said Core & Main CEO Steve LeClair in a news release.
D’Angelo Co. provides products such as pipe, valves, fittings, post indicator valves, storm drain and sewer materials, and other related products.
“The breadth of knowledge, dedication to outstanding customer service, and complementary product and service offering gained with this strategic acquisition will greatly bolster our presence and service capabilities in Southern California,” said Brad Cowles, President of Core & Main.
Core & Main is No. 9 on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors List in the Industrial category.
