Cumming, GA — Carolina Atlantic Roofing Supply LLC (“CARS”) has announced the successful acquisition of Mid Atlantic Roofing Supply Inc. (“MARS”) with financing provided by TCW Asset Management Company LLC (“TCW”) and PNC Bank, N.A. (“PNC”). FocalPoint Partners (“FocalPoint”) served as co-advisor to CARS on the transaction, along with Statesman Corporate Finance of Houston, Texas.
Carolina Atlantic Roofing Supply is a leading building materials wholesaler, distributing a comprehensive suite of roofing products to customers across the southern United States. Founded in 1974, the company’s two original branches were acquired in 2019 by an experienced management team that rapidly grew the footprint through a series of acquisitions and greenfield expansions to include eight branches across six states. The acquisition of Mid Atlantic Roofing Supply creates one of the largest independent pure-play roofing distributors in the United States.
“FocalPoint’s team analyzed the growth trajectory and demonstrated its sustainability to the market, allowing us to identify potential partners that understood the rapid increase in historical performance and provided the flexibility to support future growth. We are excited to partner with TCW and PNC as we enter the next stage of our growth,” said Tim Perryman, CEO at CARS.
