L&W Supply, a unit of ABC Supply, opened new locations in Modesto, Calif., Boise, Idaho, and Green Bay, Wis. Each location will offer wallboard, steel framing, acoustical ceilings, insulation, plastering, and other interior building products and materials.
Manny Inostros will serve as the branch manager for the Modesto, Calif., location. Inostros joined L&W Supply in 2011 and graduated from the distributor’s branch manager training program in 2019. Inostros began as a stocker/helper in the San Jose, Calif., branch and has served in roles with inside sales and as a branch supervisor. The Modesto branch represents the 8th northern California location for L&W Supply and the 16th overall across the state.
“The new Modesto branch fills a geographic gap in the footprint of the district that will allow us to better serve customers in the central valley,” said Don Wolf, district manager of Northern California/Nevada for L&W Supply.
Broc Whipple will serve as the branch manager of the Boise, Idaho, location. Whipple has held various positions, including stocker, inside sales, and branch supervisor, in his 20 years with the Chicago-based distributor. The Boise location is the 4th in Idaho for L&W Suppler.
The Green Bay, Wis., location represents a relocation of an older L&W Supply branch. Austin Heideman will be the branch manager of the new Green Bay location. Heideman previously served as the branch manager for the company’s Wausau, Wis., branch and has 15 years of industry experience, according to L&W Supply. The location is the 7th branch across Wisconsin.
With the three greenfield openings, L&W Supply, a specialty distributor of ceiling systems, steel framing, and other building materials, will operate over 170 branches in 35 states. The distributor opened locations in Texas, Virginia, and California in June.
