Fairway Building Products, Mount Joy, Pa., has sold its Mid-Atlantic based distribution unit to Seven D Wholesale, Altoona, Pa.
As part of the deal, which closed at the end of 2018, Seven D’s six Northeast locations will distribute Fairway’s full line of products.
The partnership allows Fairway to concentrate on manufacturing for the pro channel by utilizing a national network of distributors, while its Trenton, N.J.-based design-build business serves the multi-family segment in core markets with turn-key solutions.
To maintain service to its dealer base, four key Fairway Distribution employees have moved to to Seven D’s specialty products team: account manager Jay Burkholder and sales reps Jim Weston, Tim Maloney, and Bill Goldsmith.
“Seven D’s culture and commitment to serving the customer is the foundation of this partnership. The transaction will allow Fairway to execute a key element of our strategic plan, while giving us and our loyal customers the comfort of knowing that Seven D will continue to deliver the world class service they have come to know and expect from Fairway. As a distribution partner for our manufactured Fairway Architectural Railing Solutions products, Seven D will increase both frequency and intensity with the pro-dealer base for our railing products in the Northeast,” said Greg Burkholder, Fairway president/CEO.
