Lumber and building materials distributor American Construction Source (ACS) is expanding and upgrading several Homewood Building Supply operations in the greater Sacramento metro market in northern California.
“ACS is expanding capacity at Homewood to better service our growing portfolio of local and regional customers,” James Drexinger, CEO of ACS, said in a news release. “Homewood has built strong relationships among the network of building professionals who understand the Sacramento market. I am confident the local Homewood team will do a great job ensuring area builders and contractors continue to receive the support and extensive product knowledge needed to make their jobs easier.”
ACS is adding a new Homewood Lumber distribution location in Elk Grove, Calif. The distribution center features rail access and 25 acres of yard and warehouse space, according to the distributor. Homewood Door, Window, and Millwork is moving locations from Loomis, Calif., to Roseville, Calif., to a purpose-built 19,000 square foot manufacturing facility, featuring an additional 9,000 square feet of product displays and office space.
Homewood Truss in Olivehurst, Calif., is upgrading equipment and technology to double its output capacity.
Homewood Lumber moved from Loomis, Calif., to a larger facility with 15,000 square feet of expanded product displays in Rocklin, Calif., in the second half of 2020. The Rocklin location also has a 5-acre lumber yard, offering easier in/out access.
ACS said technology efficiencies at all locations are enabling the current number of team numbers to support increased demand. ACS acquired Homewood in February of 2020.
“Demand for our products and services continues to grow. We are more than doubling Homewood’s capacity to support the growth opportunity resulting from the suburban shift of housing construction,” Sam Dawson, ACS Division president, said. “The Homewood team, better servicing customers at scale, is sure to create value, and help our professional builder and remodeler customers address the increased demand for new and improved housing across the broader northern California market.”
ACS, backed by private equity firms Angeles Equity Partners and Clearlake Capital Group, was formed after purchasing Meek’s Lumber and quickly expanded with the acquisitions of Edwards Building Center, Breceknridge Building Center, and Arrow Building Center in late 2018. The distributor acquired Freeborn Lumber Company in June 2019, Contractor’s Truss Systems in September 2019, and Weaver Lumber in July 2020. ACS operates more than 70 locations in 9 states, serving custom home builders, remodelers, and DIY customers. ACS was the 14th largest company on the 2020 ProSales 100 list, generating $576.63 million in pro sales in 2019.
