Construction Resources Acquires UMI
We are excited to announce the acquisition of our company, UMI, by Construction Resources.
Construction Resources (CR) is a value-added manufacturer and distributor of specialty building products and complementary services for the southeastern United States. CR consists of broad product offerings across a large portfolio of well-recognized leading brands servicing the single family, remodel, multi-family and commercial segments of the design and construction industry.
UMI’s joining of CR reflects a great synergy between the organizations. CR’s extensive experience and reach affords UMI accelerated growth opportunities. Additionally, new business resources and larger company backing will help to further enhance our company’s position in the industry.
Don DiNorcia and the management team at UMI will continue in their current roles, post-transaction, as a part of the Construction Resources group. UMI’s sales and operations teams will continue providing superior quality products and service to our clients. In the near future, UMI has plans for expansion throughout the state of Florida. This will generate a greater reach, facilitating a more localized distribution of slabs to better support our fabricator network in the residential and commercial segments.
“We truly are excited about the opportunity this partnership presents our company,” said Don DiNorcia, President of UMI. “From an operations and geographical standpoint, there is exceptional value in the Construction Resources brand. Our businesses align almost seamlessly, and our potential for growth increases greatly with their support.”
CR has developed an enviable reputation in the design and construction sector, particularly in the Southeast, with its diverse offerings and steady growth through both start-ups and acquisitions. Founded by the Hires family in 1970 to manufacture cultured marble products, CR now offers over 60 nationally-recognized brands across 10 product categories.
“The acquisition of UMI came as a natural fit as we looked to expand our geographic footprint and continue executing on our strategic plan to become the premier one-stop-shop for design, product sourcing, and project management needs of the remodel and new build markets,” said Mitch Hires, CEO of Construction Resources. “Under the leadership of Don DiNorcia, UMI has built a solid business reputation and we believe great opportunity awaits both brands,” he added.
