Builders General Supply Company (BGS) reported that it has acquired Direct Millwork (DM) of Washington, N.J.

The acquisition was effective Jan. 31. With the acquisition, DM will become Direct Millwork, a subsidiary of BGS. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“This opportunity is a definite ‘win-win’ for both DM and BGS and offers significant growth opportunities,” said BGS President Philip Shaheen, “DM’s millwork and door shop operations will compliment BGS’ millwork and door shop operations in its Freehold branch location, and also expand DM and BGS’ customer base and market while also providing a broader offering of products to DM’s existing customers.”

DM’s products and services include interior doors, moulding, windows, exterior doors, hardware and specialty products. DM’s primary delivery area is Central and Northern New Jersey along with the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania and the entire northeast.

BGS’ primary delivery area is Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex counties in New Jersey along with some northern New Jersey locations and Staten Island in New York.

“DM brings excellent processes and an established, customer base. This acquisition gives us a unique opportunity to provide increased synergies within our company culture while at the same time allows us both to continue to maintain strong relationships with our loyal customer base throughout New Jersey and surrounding areas” said Philip Shaheen, president at BGS.

Builders’ General was incorporated in 1931 with its first location in Cranford, N.J. and now operates in its fourth generation.

This will be the 7th location for BGS. Prior to this acquisition, BGS operated 4 full-service lumberyards with retail stores and 2 design centers across Central New Jersey. BGS serves homebuilders, commercial builders and Do-It-Yourselfers.
