LEESBURG / ORLANDO — Blackton, Inc., one of Central Florida’s largest and most active suppliers of roofing and flooring materials to the homebuilding industry opened a 3rd location in the heart of Leesburg to better serve its builder clients in Lake, Marion and Sumter counties.
Michael “Micky” Blackton, chairman and CEO, said Blackton opened the branch location at 105 Park Center St. Business hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“This expansion enables us to service current and new customers with greater turnaround time,” he said.
Blackton has been operating since April out of the new 15,000 square foot facility and a half acre staging area with an initial staff of 18.
Headquartered just north of downtown Orlando with a retail location in southwest Orlando, the family-owned business has been supplying the home building industry from Jacksonville to Tampa since it was founded more than six decades ago.
