L&W Supply, the Chicago-based distributor of building materials and specialty products in the United States, reported that it has acquired the assets of Starr’s Building Supply, Inc. (SBS), located in Sacramento, Calif.

The distributor said the moves will increase its team of experienced associates and strengthen its presence in the greater Sacramento market. This acquisition gives L&W Supply its second location in the market and 17th overall in California.

Founded in 1985, SBS started as a stucco distributor but has grown to service residential and commercial markets with products including wallboard, steel framing, insulation and related products.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

“We are excited to welcome the Starr’s Building Supply associates to the L&W Supply family,” said Chad Cutlip, vice president of L&W Supply’s West Region. “Over the past 35 years, the SBS team has built strong relationships with contractors in the greater Sacramento area.”

Cutlip also noted that the acquisition “will allow us to strengthen our relationships with area contractors.”

L&W Supply operates 183 branches in 39 states and is a subsidiary of ABC Supply with more than 800 locations nationwide.
