GMS acquired Steven Kempf Building Material Company (SKBM), King of Prussia, Penn., GMS announced today in a press release.

SKBM was founded in 1994 and supplies drywall, steel studs, ceilings, and other materials to the Philadelphia area. The current team, including company founder and president Steven F. Kempf, will join GMS.

“We are excited to join the GMS family. With more than 20 years of dedicated service, we have grown into an industry leader with deep-rooted customer relationships in our markets” Kempf stated in the press release. “Our success is due to our commitment to provide unsurpassed service, quality products and long term relationships to our customers. GMS shares these core principles and provides a perfect fit for the next chapter of our growth.”

GMS went public in May. This acquisition further adds to this year’s trend of specialty dealers striking more deals than regular lumberyards.
