They started it!

image An event highlight was the ABC Supply racecar.

DALLAS/FT WORTH - The Garland branch parking lot of ABC Supply Co. Inc. was filled with “Founder’s Day” festivities Jun. 7 as guests feted Ken and Diane Hendricks. The couple established the roofing material distribution company 35 years ago and has grown it into a 700-location powerhouse.




  “We’re taking time to celebrate them, their vision and the big dreams they set in 1982,” Garland branch manager Ryan Morgan says. “We come together and cele-brate as associates and we include our ven-dors, our customers and our contractors.”
    A mechanical bull, a DJ, vendor booths and a catered lunch were highlights of the event, but a clear guest favorite was ABC’s racecar that was on site.
    “That was one of the things that Ken and Diane had a lot of pride in; we have two racecars that run in the Indy series and we have one of the show models out today,” Morgan says. “It’s great for kids, contractors, employees and families to get in, take pictures and make memories.” –mjm
