“North Georgia, Junior’s, and Massey all have exemplary reputations in their home markets, and we’re pleased to welcome their teams to US LBM,” US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said in a news release. “All three of our new acquisitions have strong customer relationships and are market leading, full-line suppliers offering a robust mix of specialty building products, and their addition to our portfolio expands and strengthens our reach in multiple rapidly growing housing markets in the mid-Atlantic and southeast.”
