Altenloh, Brinck & Co. Acquires ES Products

Altenloh, Brinck & Co. U.S. Inc. (ABC U.S.) has acquired ES Products, a specialty roof fastener company serving the low-density, low-slope roof deck market for nearly 60 years. The acquisition allows ABC U.S. to broaden its TRUFAST roofing fastener offerings and provide a complete line of fastening solutions to the low-slope roofing market.

“This gives us a seat at every table,” says Brian Roth, president and CEO of ABC U.S. “What drove the acquisition was ABC U.S.’s need to broaden our product offering, to offer a complete line of fastening solutions to the low-slope roofing market. It’s a nice strategic fit. We’re proud to maintain and carry forward the excellent ES Products name and reputation.”

Fred Hall, president of ES Products, sees the acquisition as a win-win for both companies, as well as their customers. “This acquisition provides a significant step forward for both companies in terms of product offerings and service,” he says. “Together, we can give our customers the convenience of one-stop shopping for all their fastening requirements.”

Founded in 1953, ES Products specializes in quality fastening systems that minimize installation costs while maximizing productivity. ES Products fasteners offer a quick, secure, cost-effective way to handle base sheet and rigid insulation attachments for lightweight insulating concrete, cementitious wood fiber, poured gypsum and gypsum plank installations. The products are sold primarily in the Southeast and Southwest portions of the U.S. where wind codes are more stringent.

According to Roth, the ES Products name will be retained by ABC U.S., and products will continue to be manufactured at the company’s Bristol, R.I., manufacturing facility in support of ABC U.S.’s commitment to 100 percent domestic manufacturing. ES Products’ sales office in Atlantic Beach, Fla., will also be retained. Eventually, the new ES Products line will be integrated into the TRUFAST brand, which includes commercial roofing fasteners and accessories, SIP and nail base panel fasteners, and Dow roofing adhesives and sealants.
