On July 13, The Lawless Group, a Dallas-based manufacturers’ representative to the industrial, commercial construction and safety markets, announced that it has acquired an interest in Building Connections, headquartered in Addison, Illinois.
This acquisition comes as a continuation of growth strategies for both companies. BC will now be a TLG partner continuing regular operations under its founders Dan Gilligan and Jeff Warmolts, but will transition to a TLG brand as Lawless Group Midwest.
“We are excited about this partnership,” Gilligan and Warmolts said. “BC and TLG are two great companies with shared values and customer engagement that has made both organizations successful for years.”
TLG’s reach now includes 25 states with a cross-country warehouse network. This will include the addition of a TLG Chicago area warehouse and distribution center.
“We are proud to welcome Dan, Jeff, and their longstanding relationships to the team,” commented Jack Templin, CEO of Lawless Group. “The partnership increases our reach, expands our capabilities, and positions us well to serve our customers and support manufacturer partners.”
Miller’s third-generation owners are expected to remain in their leadership roles, according to industry reports.
