US LBM Holdings entered the West Coast LBM market in Nevada and Utah with the acquisition of Desert Lumber & Truss and Desert Fasteners & Supply of Las Vegas, Nev., and Integrity Truss of Cedar City, Utah.
The Green Bay, Wis.-based company bought the two dealers from the majority shareholders Terry Ono, Dale Eggers, Charles Clayton, and Tyson Clayton. Ono will stay on as president of Desert Lumber, while Dale Eggers remains as president of Desert Truss. Tyson Clayton will stay as president of Desert Fastener & Supply. Charles “Monty” Clayton will be vice president of Desert Fastener & Supply. The Desert companies were represented by The JIAN Group of Fredericksburg, Va.
Originally founded in 1989 by Terry Ono, Desert Lumber & Truss is a full-service provider of lumber, OSB, panels, and EWP, as well as roof and floor truss systems to the Las Vegas market, primarily serving the residential homebuilder and contractor.
In 2009, Desert Fastener & Supply was founded to expand the company’s product line into fasteners, connectors, waterproofing products, and adhesives, as well as a range of tools and equipment for Las Vegas roofing, framing and specialty contractors. Earlier in 2014, Integrity Truss launched its operations providing roof and floor trusses to southwestern Utah homebuilders.
“We are excited and proud to join the US LBM team and the opportunity it brings to provide our customers with continued enhancements to our product and service offering,” Ono, a leading shareholder, said. “This partnership with US LBM provides a platform for growth to our associates and partners well into the future.”
US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said, “The Desert family of companies is a key strategic addition to US LBM. The success we’ve experienced by partnering with leading building material businesses in the Midwest and Northeast is beginning to take shape in the Southeast and West Coast with the acquisitions of the Desert companies, Jones Lumber and Coastal Roofing & Supply.”
He said US LBM will help the companies develop growth plans, as well as expand their product and customer base.
