Gypsum Management and Supply (GMS), the largest independent distributor of drywall, ceiling, and specialty building materials in the U.S., today announced it acquired Drywall Supply, which is based in Lincoln, Neb. That company will become a wholly owned subsidiary of GMS.

“We are pleased to welcome DSI into the GMS family," said Mike Callahan, president of GMS. "Their mission to lead their customers to success by providing quality products with honesty, integrity, competence, safety, and value is an excellent fit with the values and culture of GMS.”

“This is an excellent opportunity for our employees, customers and suppliers” said Avon Vandewege president of DSI. “The financial and organizational strength of GMS increases our ability to serve our growing market, while still providing the local relationships and customer service focus that has helped us ensure our customer’s success for the past 20 years.“

Earlier this year, GMS itself was acquired by AEA Investors based in New York City.
