ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. — The DAK Group, an investment bank specializing in middle-market mergers and acquisitions worldwide, announced the sale of its client N&S Supply, headquartered in Fishkill, New York, to Watsco Inc.

The DAK Group served as the exclusive investment banker and financial advisor to N&S Supply initiating and managing the process.
