BILCO Manufacturer Rep Expands Territory in Illinois, Indiana

The BILCO Co. announced Architectural Building Solutions will expand its territory as its manufacturer representative in Illinois and Indiana.

ABS, located in St. Charles, Ill., aligned with BILCO in 2021. Its expanded area includes more communities in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. ABS will now be responsible for nearly two-thirds of the area in Illinois.

“Our partnership with BILCO is one built upon pillars of mutual trust, respect, confidence and commitment,’’ said John W. Goers, managing partner for ABS. “We, along with our valued client base, appreciate what BILCO represents, stands for and delivers, which is consistently providing the highest quality service, products, and solutions for our industry. We greatly appreciate the market expansion and look forward to servicing both existing and new BILCO clients.”

ABS has more than 70 years of expertise in selling products for the commercial building industry. BILCO is the manufacturer of specialty access products, including roof hatches, automatic smoke vents, floor access doors, and access safety products. The company has served the building industry since 1926 and has been a pioneer in the development of specialty access products for commercial and residential construction.

ABS is part of BILCO’s group of independent representatives that provide building materials, first-class customer service, superior product knowledge and customized solutions for challenging projects. BILCO is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AmesburyTruth, which is a division of Tyman PLC.

“John and the team at ABS have been terrific partners for BILCO,” said Steve Weyel, director of sales and marketing for BILCO. “We’re delighted to have them take on additional responsibilities and we look forward to growing our market share in this important area of the country.”
