Wolseley makes two more acquisitions

Wolseley, the United Kingdom-based parent of Stock Building Supply and Ferguson, has announced two recent acquisitions in North America and Europe.

The company’s Ferguson division acquired Fire Fab, a distributor and fabricator of fire safety and suppression systems. Fire Fab, based in Minneapolis, had revenue of $12.4 million last year.

"This acquisition expands Ferguson’s presence in the growing fire protection market,” the company said in a statement.

Additionally, Wolseley’s Nordic region subsidiary, DT Group, acquired Sweden-based Save Tra Forsaljnings, a builders’ merchant with two branches in Sweden. The company had revenue of $16.5 million last year.

“This is the eighth bolt-on acquisition since DT Group joined Wolseley Group and is consistent with the plan to expand DT’s heavy side building materials footprint in the Nordic region,” the company noted.
