Nation’s Best acquires Bridgeport Building Centers

By HBSDealer Staff - 03/11/2020
Nation’s Best has acquired Bridgeport Building Centers, with five locations serving the north Texas market of Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding areas.

The company’s locations each contain state-of-the-art lumberyards, as well as fully stocked hardware stores, with the Bridgeport and Springtown locations also featuring design centers. Bridgeport Building Centers services a diverse customer base of homebuilders, contractors, and do-it-yourselfers.

As part of Nation’s Best’s acquisition strategy, Bridgeport Building Centers will operate under its existing name with its key leadership team continuing to oversee the company alongside Nation’s Best, which will provide the strategic and financial support necessary to achieve optimal growth and profitability.

Chris Miller, founder and CEO of Nation's Best.

“We are pleased to welcome Bridgeport Building Centers to the Nation’s Best family of companies, which increases our presence in the strong and growing Dallas-Fort Worth market,” said Chris Miller, president and CEO of Nation’s Best. “Bridgeport Building Centers is a great fit within our portfolio, and we look forward to the company’s continued success in the years to come."

Founded by Miller in 2019, Nation’s Best now operates 9 locations with more than 200 associates in Texas and Oklahoma.

In addition to our customers and suppliers, our associates are our greatest asset and, as with any acquisition, our goal will be to retain our Bridgeport Building Centers’ dedicated associates through continued education and training, the use of technology, and compassionate and fair management.”

Last month, Nation’s Best acquired Groom & Sons with three locations in Texas and Lampert Lumber and Home Center in Broken Bow, Okla.

Ronnie Hess, representing the leadership team at Bridgeport Building Centers, said that the opportunity to partner with Nation’s Best provides the company and its associates with the tools and resources necessary to support continued growth.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past 30 years and look forward to providing our customers with the highest quality of service in the years to come,” Hess said.

Nation’s Best is a member-owner of Do it Best Corp. Anchor Peabody Advisory Services, LLC served as a financial advisor to Nation’s Best, providing due diligence and transaction execution support.
