ARD & AGM Expansion
From its start in 1978, ARD Distributors has experienced an immense amount of demand which has led to expansions throughout Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Most recently, they have explored the potential for ARD in North Carolina and are excited to announce plans for the opening of ARD’s seventh location.
On May 1, 2018, ARD will begin operations in a new 24,000 sq.ft facility in Charlotte, NC. Kathy Ruiz, a former member of the ARD customer service department, has been promoted to the lead territory manager for this new market.
“This expansion will open new doors for us as we are able to assist the needs of the North Carolina market.” –Arny Cohen, ARD General Manager
Charlotte is an ideal city for ARD’s seventh distribution facility as it is the third fastest growing city in the U.S. and one of the top ten apartment markets in the country. With 13 key customers in this market, Charlotte presents great opportunity for expansion and growth for ARD.
“ARD is not the only Construction Resources company expanding this year. Atlanta Glass & Mirror is also expanding.”
From its start in 2001, Atlanta Glass & Mirror (AGM) has experienced incredible growth, particularly since opening operations in Lexington, South Carolina in 2012 and in Greer two years later.
The success of both these divisions has led to future opportunities and as a result, we are proud to announce plans for AGM’s newest facility.
In February 2018, AGM will begin operations in Summerville, South Carolina. This new 10,000 sq.ft. facility will service the low country from Charleston to Savannah, Georgia. This investment will further expand the Construction Resources footprint in the Southeast.
“Breaking into this new market will bring vast opportunities for AGM and we are excited to further support our customers in the region.” –Joseph Horne, AGM General Manager
AGM has been fortunate enough to partner with notable companies like David Weekly Homes, Mungo Homes, New Leaf Builders, Front Door Communities, and more. The demand from many of their existing key customers for an organization such as AGM has assisted in welcoming their expansion in this market. AGM’s service area in 2018 will include the entire state of South Carolina, as well as neighboring states.
Construction Resources will continue to be the region’s leading source of specialty installed products and are excited about this growth opportunity for their ARD and AGM divisions.
