Continuing its Florida expansion into specialty building products, US LBM Holdings, LLC, said late last week that it has acquired LouMac Distributors of Fort Myers, Florida, from principals Scott Myers and Lou Luongo.
"LouMac Distributors always has sought to be a resource for our clients," Myers, LouMac Distributors' president, said. "Our expansive showroom enables customers to experience our vast product offerings. We'll guide them through the entire process from the design, to wind speed-design pressure calculations and energy efficiency (NFRC) values. LouMac's outstanding team will fit seamlessly into US LBM. We are proud to join their family."
A recipient of the 2015 ProSales Dealer of the Year award, US LBM is a consortium of leading North America building material distributors, operating 166 locations across 22 states. The company focuses on specialty services for clients, including custom homebuilders, professional remodelers, and multifamily and commercial contractors.
"US LBM is the perfect partner to elevate LouMac to the next level," Luongo, LouMac's vice president, said. "This relationship strengthens our ability to provide our customers, vendors and associates with continued success for years to come."
As the third-largest building-products distributor nationally, US LBM is committed to upholding its reputation for local management, leadership and customer relationships. Myers, Luongo and their team will continue leading daily operations.
"US LBM entered the Florida market in early 2014 and since then have partnered with three separate businesses, including Jones Lumber Company, Rosen Materials and Coastal Roofing Supply," L.T. Gibson, president and CEO of US LBM, said. "The addition of LouMac further broadens US LBM's product lines into the specialty window and door category, and better diversifies its customer base within Florida. We are proud to partner with the LouMac associates and look forward to a future of opportunities together."
