Specialty building materials distributor US LBM opened a new floor and roof truss manufacturing facility and building materials yard in Auburndale, Fla. The facility, more than 100,600 square feet, is located 40 miles northeast of Tampa and 60 miles southwest of Orlando and will operate as part of US LBM’s Raymond Building Supply division.

In addition to operating three roof truss lines and one floor truss line, the new location also supplies residential and commercial builders in central Florida with a range of materials, including lumber, engineered wood products, cabinetry, windows, custom millwork and exterior and interior doors.

The Auburndale, Fla., location is Raymond Building Supply’s third truss facility in Florida. The US LBM division also operates manufactures facilities in North Fort Myers and Miami. US LBM has added 15 component manufacturing facilities through acquisitions and greenfield expansions over the past year.

“Florida continues to be a strong market for construction and prefabricated structural components, and this new plant allows us to support builders in both the Tampa and Orlando markets,” US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said in a news release. “The new Auburndale location, along with the other manufacturing facilities we’ve added over the past 12 months, demonstrates our commitment to investing in solutions and services that help builders reduce construction time and more effectively manage their costs.”

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