Specialty building products distributor US LBM expanded its reach in the New York metropolitan area with the opening of a new roofing and siding focused location in Whippany, N.J. The location, which will operate as part of US LBM’s Universal Supply division, will provide contractors, remodelers, and builders in the New Jersey suburbs access to roofing and siding products.

“The Whippany location, in combination with similar roofing and siding focused locations we’ve opened over the past two years nearby Paterson and Newark in northern New Jersey, expands US LBM’s coverage in an important specialty category in a high-volume metropolitan market area,” US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson said in a prepared statement.

In addition to Universal Supply, US LBM’s brands in the area include Feldman Lumber and Direct Cabinet Sales.

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