Hart Lumber, a building products distributor and manufacturer with operations in the Austin, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antonio metro areas.

"Oldham's long history of building relationships and delivering outstanding levels of expertise and service has made it a name builders trust in North Texas, and we're excited to welcome the Oldham team to US LBM," said US LBM President and CEO L.T.
