Specialty building materials distributor US LBM acquired Florida-based Manning Building Supplies, a provider of building products and manufactured components. Founded in 1979, Manning’s product portfolio includes lumber and trusses, along with custom doors, windows, and millwork. The company also provides installation services for its doors, windows, and millwork.
Jacksonville-based Manning Building Supplies operates nine locations throughout Florida, seven building materials distribution yards—six of which include custom door shops—and two truss manufacturing plants in Jacksonville and Ocala.
“US LBM shares Manning Building Supplies’ mission of providing our customers with the best products and experience. We’re looking forward to this new opportunity and continuing to serve our communities,” Manning Building Supplies’ Jimmy Cissel said. Cissel, along with Steve Wiechens, will continue to lead day-to-day operations for Manning Building Supplies.
With the acquisition, US LBM operates 19 total locations in Florida, including five truss manufacturing facilities. US LBM has added 15 component manufacturing facilities through acquisitions and greenfield expansions over the past year.
“We are thrilled to partner with the team at Manning Building Supplies, who are well known for providing exceptional service, products, and solutions to Florida builders,” US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said. “With Manning and Raymond Building Supply, US LBM has a robust network of distribution and manufacturing locations throughout Florida, serving all of the state’s top housing markets, including the Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Sarasota metro areas.”
