American Construction Source grows California operations

As a result of a solid residential construction market in Northern California, American Construction Source (ACS) is making upgrades and operation changes at several of its facilities in the Sacramento region.

The Springfield, Mo.-based pro dealer is adding a new Homewood Lumber distribution location in Elk Grove, Calif. which features rail access and 25 acres of yard and warehouse space.  

Homewood Door, Window, and Millwork is moving from Loomis, Calif. to Roseville. The new location a purpose-built 19,000 square foot manufacturing facility, featuring an additional 9,000 square feet of product displays and office space.  

Homewood Truss in Olivehurst, Calif. is upgrading equipment and technology to double output capacity.

ACS acquired Homewood Holdings in February 2020.

“ACS is expanding capacity at Homewood to better service our growing portfolio of local and regional customers,” said James Drexinger, CEO of ACS.  “Homewood has built strong relationships among the network of building professionals who understand the Sacramento market. I am confident the local Homewood team will do a great job of ensuring area builders and contractors continue to receive the support and extensive product knowledge needed to make their jobs easier.” 

ACS also noted that Homewood Lumber moved in the second half of 2020 from Loomis, Calif. to a larger location in Rocklin, Calif. with 15,000 square feet of expanded product displays and a 5-acre lumber yard offering easier in/out access. 

Technology efficiencies at all locations are enabling the current number of team members to support the increase in demand, ACS said.

“Demand for our products and services continues to grow,” said Sam Dawson, ACS division president. “We are more than doubling Homewood’s capacity to support the growth opportunity resulting from the suburban shift of housing construction.” 

Dawson also noted that better servicing customers at scale, “is sure to create value, and help our professional builder and remodeler customers address the increased demand for new and improved housing across the broader Northern California market.”

Homewood Building Supply operates three locations along with a distribution facility in the Sacramento market. American Construction Source operates more than 70 locations in 9 states. ACS is backed by Angeles Equity Partners and Clearlake Capital Group.  Learn more online at www.acs-lbm.com.
