Dakota Supply Group Acquires Brown Supply

Dakota Supply Group (DSG) announces the acquisition of Brown Supply Co. in an asset purchase effective August 2.

Founded in 1940, Brown Supply is a distributor of waterworks products such as water/sewer pipes, fire hydrants, marking flags, equipment, and supplies with four locations across Iowa.

The current owner, Kevin Doud, will remain with the business. Doud will become the region sales manager for Iowa. In this role, Doud will help facilitate DSG’s waterworks expansion across Iowa.

“We’re excited to welcome the Brown Supply Company associates to the DSG team of employee-owners,” DSG President and CEO Paul Kennedy says. “Brown Supply Company has been a customer-focused market leader in Iowa for more than 60 years we look forward to building on this history in the years ahead. This strategic acquisition expands DSG’s footprint to a new state and provides a foundation for further segment expansion.”
