Builders FirstSource reported second quarter net sales increased 24.2% to $6.9 billion compared to sales of $5.6 billion in the second quarter for 2021.

On July 1, Builders FirstSource acquired HomCo Lumber and Hardware in Flagstaff, Ariz. with sales of $44 million last year. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

On April 1, the company acquired both the Texas Panel Truss and East Panel Truss businesses. Also on April 1, Builders FirstSource acquired Valley Truss, which serves the  Boise, Idaho market.
