GMS Acquires Home Lumber & Building Supplies

Home Lumber is GMS's fourth acquisition of 2023.

Tucker, Georgia-based building products distributor GMS Inc. has acquired Home Lumber & Building Supplies, the company announced May 2. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1960, Home Lumber is based in Victoria, British Columbia, and is one of Vancouver Island’s oldest distributors of lumber and building materials. Home Lumber will operate under GMS Canada, GMS’s Canadian subsidiary, according to a news release.

“Home Lumber is a leading supplier of lumber, engineered wood, doors, framing packages and siding as well as other key Complementary building materials offered by GMS Canada,” GMS President and CEO John Turner said in the release. “This acquisition will further strengthen our ability to serve our customers and provide an opportunity to expand our tools and fasteners offerings to a new customer base, reinforcing our existing market position on Vancouver Island. We’d like to welcome the Home Lumber team and their highly-respected brand to the GMS family.”

Home Lumber is GMS’s fourth acquisition of 2023. GMS announced two acquisitions — Engler, Meier & Justus, Inc. in Chicago and Blair Building Materials in Ontario — in April, and also acquired Brooklyn, New York-based Tanner Bolt & Nut in January.

GMS ranked No. 8 on MDM’s Top Building Materials/Construction Distributors list in 2022.
