Denver, CO—R/W Specialties a portfolio company of Strength Capital Partners, purchased the assets of America Building Products and merged operations with it.

Founded in 1965 and headed by CEO Rob McCrae, R/W Specialties is a wholesale distributor of specialty building products to customers in the Mountain West. Headquartered in Denver, CO, it has operations in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Wyoming.

America Building Products (ABP), based in Jefferson City, MO, is a dedicated distributor of interior and exterior doors, windows, cabinets, hardware, and millwork, serving customers in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Illinois, and Arkansas. In business for more than 30 years, ABP offers state-of-the-art pre-hung door and millwork capabilities to meet exact specifications.

“R/W is the ideal partner for ABP as we continue to bring our capabilities across the U.S.,” says Jen Brooks, COO of ABP. “Our shared resources and combined operations will allow us to better serve both our customers’ needs.” Brooks continues as COO and America Building Products continues to sell its door and millwork offerings under its brand.

“This is a unique opportunity to combine RW’s purchasing strengths in providing specialty building products with ABP’s millwork expertise,” says Mark McCammon, co-founder of Strength Capital Partners, whose portfolio also includes CALco Pallet Company, a wood shipping pallet manufacturer in Richmond, IL.
