Five days after it announced its fifth deal of the year, specialty construction supplies and safety product distributor White Cap released details of another acquisition.

On June 12, White Cap announced it will acquire Dayton Superior Corp., a provider of highly engineered accessories, chemicals and forming solutions within the concrete construction industry, to expand White Cap’s value-added services.

The company will add significant design, engineering, estimating and takeoff, and research and development capabilities across White Cap’s product and service portfolio.

“White Cap has relied on Dayton Superior as an established industry leader and close trusted partner for many years now. This transaction is both a continuation and deepening of this strong relationship to benefit our customers and associates,” White Cap CEO Alan Sollenberger said in a news release. “Dayton Superior’s strong teams have the technical and operational expertise to help White Cap expand our value-added services and grow our one-stop shop.”

Dayton Superior brings distribution centers, global manufacturing and sourcing capabilities, rental yards, and a centrally located Innovation Center for customer training and the development and testing of new products, all supported by more than 690 associates located across 32 U.S. states and five countries.

Through these facilities, Dayton Superior extends and enhances availability and access to critical products and services for customers, company officials said.

Dayton Superior CEO Mark Carpenter will continue to lead the Dayton Superior business, reporting to White Cap Chief Operating Officer Scott Riggs.

White Cap makes several appearances on MDM’s 2024 Top Distributor Lists, set to launch June 13, accompanied by a free webcast.
