Birmingham, Alabama-based Ram Tool Construction Supply Co. has opened a new greenfield branch in the Greater Chicago Area. Located at 5 Greenwood Avenue in Romeoville, Illinois, the store is Ram Tool’s first branch in the state.
“We’re very excited to be expanding our footprint into Illinois and especially into a top three market in the U.S.,” said Page Naftel, president of Ram Tool. “Our new branches in Louisville and Cincinnati have performed very well. We believe that we can have similar success in Chicago. I look forward to bringing our commitment to customer service to the Chicago market.”
From a single branch in Birmingham, Ram Tool has grown outwards in all directions and plans to continue that growth into the Midwest. With the new branch, Ram Tool now operates 39 branches in 15 states, servicing close to 45,000 job sites in the markets they serve.
“We’ve proven our concept of job site service everywhere we’ve opened branches,” said Hillery Head, CEO of Ram Tool. “All our associates are trained to have a sense of urgency in all they do and to provide heroic service to our customers wherever and whenever needed. That’s what has worked for us in the past and we’re confident that it will work for us in Chicago.”
