Adams and Reese represented Birmingham, Alabama-based Ram Tool and Supply in the company's acquisition of Otto Dukes Construction Supply located in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Ram Tool is a construction supply company focusing on commercial construction customers and their needs. At each of its locations, Ram Tool carries significant inventory that can be delivered to a job site quickly and accurately.  Originally located in Birmingham alone, Ram Tool now operates from San Antonio, Texas to Washington, D.C.  With the addition of Corpus Christi, Ram Tool now has 31 branches, six of which are in Texas.

“We continue to see opportunities, and we act when it is a strategic fit. Texas is a great market for us, and Corpus Christi is an important part of that market,” said Hillery Head, President and CEO of Ram Tool.

Otto Dukes has operated in Corpus Christi since 1962.  It is a family company dedicated to customer service.  The Company’s philosophy mirrors that of Ram Tool – a place of heroic service and responsiveness, a place where ONE CALL GETS IT ALL.

Otto Dukes owner Mike Johnson will remain with the Company as the branch manager of Ram Tool Corpus.

“We are excited to have Mike and his team join the Ram Tool family, and we look forward to a strong and positive presence in Corpus,” added Hillery Head.

Throughout its footprint, Ram Tool employs over 600 people. Ram Tool is a certified Woman Owned Business Enterprise.
