Stock Expands Installed Services with Coleman Floor Company Acquisition

Stock Building Supply, Raleigh, NC, a supplier of building materials to professionals in the U.S., has acquired Coleman Floor Company, Inc.


Coleman primarily sells and installs residential flooring products to production residential home builders throughout the Eastern U.S. and Chicago. Its product line includes carpet, vinyl wood, laminates and ceramic tile. In 2005, Coleman recorded sales of $233.5 million.


‘Coleman has a proven management team that has historically produced exceptional operating results and has developed a loyal customer base with its focus on providing superior customer service,’ says Fenton Hord, Stock President and CEO. ‘Coleman will add yet another line to our growing offering of installed products.’


Founded in 1947 in Chicago, Coleman expanded into Virginia and South Florida in the 1970s and into North Carolina in 1996. The company presently operates from 23 locations. The acquisition of Coleman adds 791 associates to the Stock family. All senior management, including Tim Coleman, president, will remain with the company.
