Brock White Construction Company Announces New Ownership

November 3, 2016


Brock White Company is pleased to announce its acquisition by The Sterling Group, a private equity firm headquartered in Houston, Texas.  The acquisition provides an exit strategy for the owners who have guided and grown our business over the last 30 years and an exciting new avenue for the company to continue its growth and prosperity well into the future.  

Brock White Company, headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, is a leading construction specialty products distributor that has been serving contractors, industrial accounts, and other construction product users for over 60 years through 29 distribution centers throughout Canada from Vancouver BC to Thunder Bay, Ontario and across the upper Midwest United States in Minnesota, North and South Dakota, and the northern half of Wisconsin.  Brock White Canada is wholly owned by Brock White Company.

The Sterling Group, founded in 1982, has acquired 49 platform companies totaling over $10 billion in value.  They have invested in manufacturing, distribution and industrial service businesses.  Sterling works hand in hand with management teams to drive internal expansion, pursue strategic acquisitions, and improve operational efficiencies.  

Brock White works hard every day to be your “First Choice” of supply by providing top notch customer service and both high quality and innovative products.  We will continue to provide you the service that you have come to expect under our Brock White banners.  Going forward we expect to continue in a “business as usual” mode with the full backing and support of Sterling.  All normal lines of communication will remain unchanged.
