Walter Muratori, President of Cameron Ashley and Ashley Aluminum, commented, "The opening of these branches strengthens Ashley's leading position in the rapidly growing sunbelt region of the country. It also represents another step forward in our strategy to become a national distributor through internal growth as well as acquisition."
