Homewood Holdings, LLC (Homewood Holdings), a portfolio company of private equity investment firm, Building Industry Partners (BIP), announced the acquisition of select assets of Building Supply and Lumber Co., Inc. (Building Supply and Lumber).
Founded in 1946, Building Supply and Lumber is an independent lumber and building materials pro dealer that serves custom and commercial homebuilders as well as remodel/repair contractors throughout the Northern California market. Building Supply and Lumber will be the third business acquired under the Homewood Holdings umbrella, since the formation of Homewood Holdings in early 2016 by BIP and building industry veteran, Jim Stockman.
Building Supply and Lumbers former owner, Stan McMaster, will work with Homewood as a consultant to continue servicing the Northern California LBM market and help grow Homewoods market share in the pro dealer segment. The transaction enables Stan to transition into retirement, following a long and successful career spent building one of the areas leading LBM distributors.
The acquisition adds to Homewoods Northern California LBM footprint and expands its customer base of homebuilders and contractors, while benefiting from Building Supply and Lumbers longtime customer relationships and expertise. In addition to Building Supply and Lumber, Homewood Holdings consists of Homewood Building Supply, based in greater Sacramento, CA, and Evergreen Lumber, based in greater Seattle, WA.
