Gypsum Management and Supply (GMS) today announced the acquisition of J&B Materials, a drywall distributor that operates locations in El Cajon, Escondido, Riverside, and El Centro, Calif.; and one location branded under the Pono Building Materials name in Honolulu, Hawaii.

J&B Materials, which has existed for more than 30 years, sells drywall, stucco, lath and plaster, and fasteners, among other building materials.

"We are pleased to bring J&B Materials and Pono Building Materials into the GMS family," says GMS president Mike Callahan "This partnership provides us with an excellent opportunity to expand our service area into California and Hawaii while enhancing our West Coast coverage."
