US LBM acquired Home Center Supply, a specialty building materials supplier in central Arizona. Home Center Supply will join US LBM's Arizona-based R&K Building Supply and operate under the R&K brand.
Home Center Supply operates two retail locations in Heber and Payson, Ariz., providing lumber, doors, windows, drywall, hardware, roofing and decking products to professional builders and do-it-yourselfers.
"Home Center Supply is a trusted partner in its community, known for its superior products, expert advice and customer service, and this will be a great addition to US LBM and R&K," said US LBM President & CEO L.T. Gibson. "As a leading distributor in the Phoenix area, these new locations will help R&K expand its reach and product offering to customers in central Arizona."
With the addition of Home Center Supply, US LBM now operates four locations in Arizona, including R&K's 20-acre property just outside of Phoenix in Mesa, which includes sales offices, showrooms, a lumberyard, truss plant and several warehouses. In addition to R&K, US LBM's Rosen Materials also operates locations in Arizona.
The announcement follows one day after the company announced its acquisition of Brand Vaughan Lumber in Georgia, a move that followed a busy month of activity: In May the mega dealer announced it was acquiring American Construction Source along with Higginbotham Brothers.
US LBM operates more than 40 divisions – from Alco Doors to Zeeland Lumber & Supply. It operates more than 320 locations around the country.
