US LBM strikes again

Just a week after announcing the acquisition of K-I Lumber & Building Materials in the Ohio River Valley, US LBM is at it again.

Wallboard Supply Company of Londonderry, New Hampshire is the newest member of the acquisition-oriented collection of LBM companies, now in 18 states with more than 90 locations.

US LBM bought the third generation, family run business from the Filion family and its investors. Terms were not disclosed. 

Founded by Bob Filion, Wallboard Supply Company has been serving New England’s building needs since 1970.  In addition to wallboard, Wallboard Supply carries metal framing, insulation, lumber and ceilings, among other products.

“US LBM will help my father John and I take Wallboard Supply to the next level,” said VP Ryan Filion. “The growth opportunities for our associates, vendor partners and customers are more than my grandfather and founder, Bob Filion, could have ever imagined.”

US LBM CEO L.T. Gibson described the acquisition as a great addition. “We are enthusiastic about expanding Wallboard Supply Company further into the oston metropolitan market with a new location planned in 2015,” he said.

U.S. LBM was the 2013 recipient of the HCN Pro Dealer of the Year Award.
