Honesdale, Pa.-based Top Notch Distributors recently acquired Boyle & Chase Inc., based in Hingham, Mass.

“We’re excited about the acquisition of Boyle & Chase and the value that it brings to customers for both companies,” says Dave Prouty, president of Top Notch. “This acquisition brings together two outstanding companies. Together, we will be able to better serve customers through the opportunity of increased inventory, enhanced turn-around on deliveries and the same outstanding, quality service that customers have come to expect from both companies.”

Top Notch has locations in Earth City, Mo., and Carson City, Nev. Boyle & Chase is a distributor for 20 major lines of commercial and decorative hardware.

“I’m so proud of the growth and quality operation of Boyle &Chase over our many decades of operation,” says Mike Rotondi, president of Boyle & Chase. “Being acquired by such a wonderful organization as Top Notch assures that our customers will continue to receive outstanding service, broader stock offerings and enhanced efficiencies. Our employees will combine with those of Top Notch to be part of a dynamic company with many opportunities for growth. As I move forward and eventually towards retirement, I’m thrilled to be able to have our employees be part of the best organization of its kind that I’ve seen in my 45 years – they are in the best hands that I can leave them, which is so important to me.”
