U.S. LBM expands in Mid-Atlantic

By HBSDealer Staff - 09/04/2018
U.S. LBM Holdings has acquired Blevins Building Supply, a building materials distributor with 5 locations in western North Carolina and one in southern Virginia.

Blevins Building Supply will continue to operate under the Blevins name as a unit of U.S. LBM’s Parker’s Building Supply, which has 25 locations in Texas and California.

Third generation owner Bill Blevins, who has led the company for more than 60 years, will continue with Blevins in an advisory role, with General Manager Randy Miller leading day-to-day operations. Blevins will also continue its relationship with Do it Best, the second-largest home improvement co-op in the building products industry. Based in Buffalo Grove, Ill., U.S. LBM is one of the largest Do it Best dealers in the country.

Founded in 1946 by Quincy and Wayne Blevins, Blevins Building Supply is a provider of specialty building materials, including roofing, cabinetry, windows, appliances, insulation and paint, to pros and homeowners in North Carolina and southern Virginia. With this acquisition, U.S. LBM expands its presence in the rapidly growing North Carolina market and adds the company’s first location in Virginia.

“Parker’s and Blevins have complementary operating models and share the same principles of providing superior customer service and a wide catalog of products to both do-it-yourselfers and building professionals,” said Parker’s Building Supply President Chris Rivers. “We’re pleased to welcome the Blevins team to the Parker’s family and the greater U.S. LBM network.”

Prior to this acquisition, U.S. LBM operated more than 240 locations in 29 states. For the first six months of 2018 U.S. LBM generated sales of $1.57 billion, rising 7.5% from sales of $1.46 billion during the first half of 2017
