The Lester Group has acquired Custom Builder Supply Company, which operates in Williamsburg, Va., and James City County in Virginia.

“Custom Builder Supply has built a great brand in Williamsburg, Va., and James City County over the past nearly forty years,” Jay Dickens, CEO of The Lester Group, said. “Our company operates five other building supply locations and is very excited to join with the outstanding people at CBS. We strongly believe in the role of the independent lumber yard and the decisions of our store management are always made closest to the customer.”

Custom Builder Supply will continue to operate under its existing brand name post-acquisition with its team intact.

“We have a great group of employees and have always been dedicated to giving great quality service to our customers,” Sandy Cooper of Custom Builder Supply Company said. “Our organizations have very similar business thinking and we look forward to growing together with Lester and all our customers.”

The Lester Group has a portfolio of building supply stores, commercial real estate, and forestlands in Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

“We’re not just adding a business, we’re welcoming a brand that shares our values and commitment to quality and service into our family,” George Lester, co-chairman of The Lester Group, said. “This union will strengthen our commitment to serving the community and fostering enduring business relationships.”
