Dakota Supply Group, Fargo, N.D., has acquired Wisconsin-based W.A. Roosevelt, a distributor of plumbing, electrical and HVAC products. W.A. Roosevelt, which has almost 100 employees, has locations in La Crosse, Madison, New Berlin, Plover and Rice Lake, Wis. The company was founded in 1868.
According to a DSG press release announcing the acquisition, W.A. Roosevelt will retain its name and staff, and while it will become a division of DSG, virtually all other proceedings will be “business as usual” for customers and manufacturers alike. This new partnership will add Wisconsin and the northern Michigan to DSG's service area, which currently includes Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota, as well as portions of Iowa, Wyoming and Montana.
Established in 1898, the employee-owned DSG sells not only electrical products but plumbing, HVAC, communications, utility, metering technology, automation, and waterworks products. The company has 400 employees and was ranked #39 on EW's most recent Top 200 listing.
