The company will operate as Calverley Supply, A DSG Company, before eventually transitioning to the DSG brand.

"At Calverley Supply, we know that it is our employees that make us unique. Anthony and I are thrilled to know our team of great people will carry on as ESOP owners. Thus, becoming the third generation of our family-run business," said Jason Calverley.
