On June 12, St. Louis-based waterworks and industrial supplies distributor Core & Main entered into a definitive agreement to acquire J.W. D’Angelo Co. Inc., a full-service provider of fire protection and waterworks products with three locations in Southern California.

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.

Core & Main Completes Acquisition of Foster Supply

On July 10, Core & Main announced it has closed its previously announced acquisition of Foster Supply, a full-service provider of precast concrete structures, pipe, drainage materials and related geosynthetics products operating out of seven locations in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.
