A day removed from acquiring Georgia Truss, US LBM has struck again with the acquisition of Comtech, a manufacturer and supplier of structural roof and floor trusses located in North Carolina.

Founded in 1970, Comtech manufactures floor and roof trusses and provides engineered wood products to builders in the Carolinas, including Raleigh, Pinehurst, and Greenville, and along the coast from Morehead City to Myrtle Beach and Pawley's Island.

 "The addition of Comtech’s truss manufacturing capabilities enhances the strength of US LBM’s network in the Carolinas, expanding our service offering and product mix across several key markets in the region," said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. "With a well-earned reputation for quality and service, we’re pleased Comtech is joining US LBM."

US LBM said Comtech will operate as part of US LBM’s Professional Builders Supply, which distributes residential and commercial building materials, such as lumber, siding, trim, doors, windows, decking and railing, to builders and remodelers across the Carolinas.  

Professional Builders Supply also provides turnkey installation services, including residential roofing and siding.

The financial terms of this acquisition were not disclosed.

Yesterday, US LBM announced its acquisition of Georgia Truss, which designs, manufactures, and supplies roof and floor truss components to contractors, developers, multifamily, commercial and residential builders in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area.

Georgia Truss is operating as part of US LBM’s Brand Vaughan Lumber, which has multiple locations in Georgia, including a new floor and roof truss manufacturing facility outside of Atlanta.

Based ed in Buffalo Grove, Ill., US LBM is one of the nation’s largest lumber and building products distrbutor with more than 400 locations.

The company also strengthened its truss presence in the Southeast with the acquisition of Deco Truss in August.
