L&W Supply, a unit of ABC Supply, acquired the assets of Sacramento, Calif.-based Starr’s Building Supply (SBS). The acquisition will expand L&W Supply’s presence in the greater Sacramento market and California overall. SBS represents L&W’s second Sacramento location and 17th branch in California.

“We are excited to welcome the Starr’s Building Supply associates to the L&W Supply family. Over the past 35 years, the SBS team has built strong relationships with contractors in the greater Sacramento area,” Chad Cutlip, vice president of L&W Supply’s west region, said in a news release. “We look forward to continuing to support their contractor customers. This acquisition improves our ability to service the Sacramento market and will allow us to strengthen our relationships with area contractors.”

SBS, founded in 1985, began as a stucco distributor, but has grown to service residential and commercial markets with products including wallboard, steel framing, insulation, and related products.

Chicago-based L&W Supply, a specialty distributor of gypsum wallboards, suspended ceiling tiles, and other building materials, operates 183 branch locations in 39 states. Recently, the distributor acquired Merrimack Building Supply, with three locations in the New England region.
