Upon the closing of the deal, NCA will combine with White Cap Supply Canada, which is comprised of the Brafasco and Brock White Canada (BWC) brands, to form a single Canadian business.

We are excited and committed to this intended combination, which is still subject to obtaining customary regulatory approvals, as together we will be able to offer an unparalleled level of service, depth of inventory and breadth of products for customers across Canada, coast-to-coast.
The depth of products, services, and knowledge that NCA has in concrete forming and accessories complements Brafasco’s specialty in fasteners, tools, and safety products and BWC’s portfolio of building envelope, concrete accessories, masonry and geotechnical products.
This acquisition brings together three talented teams with unique and complementary strengths that will enable the best possible experience for you – our valued customers. Brafasco, BWC, and NCA all share a strong commitment to providing you with exceptional service.
However, until the deal has closed, Brafasco and BWC as White Cap Supply Canada and NCA will continue to operate as standalone companies. More details will follow upon the closing of the transaction.
In the meantime, our commitment to serving you with exceptional, uninterrupted service remains our top priority.
We look forward to this exciting future and the continued opportunity to serve you with excellence!
