US LBM, a distributor of specialty building materials, acquired RAKS Building Supply, a provider of building products and manufactured components to builders and contractors throughout central New Mexico.

RAKS, founded in 1986, offers a portfolio including lumber, floor and roof trusses, windows, doors, and hardware. Los Lunas, N.M.-based RAKS operates five locations throughout the Albuquerque meteor area, including an 11-acre full-line building materials yard, home center, and truss manufacturing plant in Rio Bravo.

“US LBM has an outstanding track record of partnering with the best local building materials suppliers, and we’re excited for the enhanced value and greater opportunities this partnership will create for our associates, customers, and the community,” Richie Tabet of RAKS Building Supply said.

Tabet, Kenny Trujilo, and Bobby Trujilo will continue to lead day-to-day operations of RAKS post-acquisition. With the deal, US LBM now operates 12 locations across the state of New Mexico.

“RAKS Building Supply has a well-earned reputation for providing customers in New Mexico with exceptional products and service, and we’re pleased to welcome them to the US LBM family,” US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said. “The Albuquerque region continues to see high demand for housing, and with continued low inventory levels, the addition of RAKS expands our network into a strong market that will continue to grow.”

US LBM offers a portfolio of specialty products, including windows, doors, millwork, wallboard, roofing, siding, engineered components, and cabinetry.
