Jon-Don, a leading supplier of equipment, consumables, and know-how to specialty contractors, is expanding its distribution network with the acquisition of Quest Building Products, an Anaheim-based distributor of concrete surface prep products, equipment, and service.
As Jon-Don expands its expertise in servicing specialty contractors in the concrete surface prep and polishing sector, the acquisition of Quest Building Products is an important component of the company's strategic growth initiatives.
"Jon-Don and Quest share a similar set of core values—a commitment to providing exceptional service, dedication to helping our customers achieve success, and unshakable integrity in all we do," says John Paolella, founder and CEO of Jon-Don. "Quest customers can trust Jon-Don to provide a high level of customer service, product knowledge, and industry expertise."
As part of the acquisition, Jon-Don will become the supplier for Kretus, a new line of high-performance concrete coating systems.
"We are excited to expand Kretus products through Jon-Don's entire distribution network and customer base," says Ron Webber, founder and CEO of Quest Building Products.
In addition, Jon-Don plans to open its 13th national distribution center in Anaheim, California in late spring/early summer of 2019. The new 40,000-square-foot facility will house the Quest team along with Jon-Don's expanded product assortment within concrete surface prep and polishing, including the Kretus line. At that time, Jon-Don's full assortment of safety, water and fire damage restoration, carpet cleaning, and janitorial/building maintenance will be available as well. The new Anaheim facility will also feature a full retail showroom, an equipment repair center, and training/education area.
Jodi Cain, general manager for Quest Building Products, will join the Jon-Don team and help head up the transition as Quest merges with Jon-Don over the coming months.
"We're thrilled to work with Jodi and the rest of the team joining us from Quest," says Cesar Lanuza, executive vice president at Jon-Don. "They bring a great deal of expertise and real-world knowledge that will help our customers not just in California, but across the continental U.S. From advice on choosing the right products to troubleshooting equipment to bidding a job, specialty contractors can rely on the team at Jon-Don to help tackle their toughest jobs."
