Roofmart Ontario announced on August 2 that it had completed a deal to acquire Hamilton, Ontario-based AMA Roofing Supplies.

The transaction, which officially closed on August 1 and announced in a news release, brings together two long-time, family-owned members of the roofing supply industry in Ontario. As both companies are privately owned and operated, details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"We are excited to be announcing this partnership with such a respected local business in the Golden Horseshoe," Trevor Armstrong, general manager of Roofmart Ontario, said in a statement. "With both companies being family-owned and long-time members of the business community in the region, there was already a lot of common ground upon which to build this new relationship.”

Armstrong added he was pleased “…that Andrew Courchesne and Monique Laberto will [remain] with us as part of the Roofmart family."

Following the close of the deal, Roofmart indicated that along with Courchesne and Laberto, whose family founded and operated AMA Roofing in the Golden Horseshoe for four decades 40 years, plans to retain AMA's current staff of professionals.

"The Courchesne family is thrilled to be joining Roofmart's organization," stated Courchesne and Laberto. "Our family has been in the roofing distribution industry since 1979; the deal will not only increase our strength within the building materials industry but will also allow us to improve our service to our clients and provide greater support to our loyal and experienced AMA team.”
