Gypsum Management and Supply (GMS), the largest independent distributor of drywall, ceiling, and specialty building materials in the U.S., today announced it acquired Seranno Drywall Supply in Iowa City, Iowa. As part of the deal, Seranno Drywall Supply will become a Tamarack Materials branch.

"We are excited about the expansion into Iowa," said Jerry Speights, vice president of the Central Division of GMS. "The combined strength of the Tamarack and Serrano brands will come together in Iowa City, presenting an exciting opportunity to service our customers." 

Speights added the acquisition "was an easy choice. They have the same cultural values, supported by well-established relationships in Iowa and many years of operational experience. That is why we knew they would be a great addition to the GMS family."

"We are pleased to bring Serrano Drywall Supply into the GMS family," said GMS president Mike Callahan. "Their commitment to delivering exceptional quality of service, personnel, products and safety fits with the GMS culture. This partnership provides GMS the opportunity to expand our service footprint in the state of Iowa."
