American Construction Source (ACS) has acquired Contractor’s Truss Systems (CTS), based in Cotter, Ark.

CTS will continue to operate under its existing brand name. The company has provided engineered wood products for more than 25 years for residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial construction.

James Drexinger, CEO of American Construction Source.

“Contractor’s Truss Systems joins our other component manufacturing facilities in California, Missouri, and Wisconsin to help our customers complete construction projects on time and under budget,” said James Drexinger, CEO of ACS. “The CTS team looks forward to providing the same personalized and responsive service builders have come to rely upon throughout the Ozarks region for more than a quarter century.”

The acquisition of CTS is the fifth by ACS in the past 11 months.

ACS said component manufacturing is helping builders and contractors address the skilled labor shortage by leveraging pre-built wall panels, floor trusses and roof trusses engineered and manufactured in a controlled environment.

“CTS is excited to join the ACS platform and extend our component manufacturing capabilities beyond our existing customers,” said Contractor’s Truss Systems founders Kent Newman and Teresa Newman. “We believe ACS has the momentum and experienced leadership team to achieve the mission of becoming a leading building products distributor with national scale, personalized service, and the industry’s best customer experience.”

Based in Springfield, Mo., ACS operates more than 70 locations in 7 states. The pro dealer is backed by Angeles Equity Partners and Clearlake Capital Group.

ACS brands include Meek’s Lumber, Arrow Building Center, Breckenridge Building Center and Edwards Building Center.
