Specialty distributor Gypsum Management and Supply (GMS) acquired the acoustical and drywall operations of San Antonio, Texas-based J.P. Hart Lumber Company.

Three-unit Hart Acoustical & Drywall Supply (HADS) distributes drywall, metal studs, insulation, and ceiling tiles. The operation will become part of GMS subsidiary, Lone Star Materials, after the closing of the deal. The acquisition will enhance Lone Star’s existing south Texas distribution network, which includes locations in San Antonio, Austin, and Laredo.

“We are excited to welcome the HADS team to the GMS family and bolster an already strong presence in South Texas,” Brad Nannen, vice president of the southern division of GMS, said in a public statement. “We look forward to leveraging the operations of the combined platform to provide the best products and service to our customers.”

Tucker, Ga.-based GMS operates a network of more than 245 distribution centers across the U.S. and Canada. The company ranked 8th on the 2019 ProSales 100, generating $2.66 billion in sales in 2018.
