Duluth, Georgia-based Specialty Building Products announced Monday it has signed an agreement to acquire DW Distribution, Inc., a distributor of building materials and millwork products in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico.

The companies said the move provides expanded product offerings and geographical reach “with a combined focus on serving customers at the highest level.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

SBP is the parent company of U.S. Lumber and other businesses.

DW Distribution is a third-generation, family-run distributor of building materials, millwork products and door units.

“DW Distribution is a tremendous addition to SBP,” said Jeff McLendon, president and CEO of Specialty Building Products. “The Potter Family and their team at DW have created an organization that is the leading specialty products distributor in its region. Trusted by loyal customers and focused on making a difference in the lives of their employees, DW Distribution aligns with our culture and direction. We are thrilled to work together as we grow our combined business.”

Following SBP’s recent acquisition of Reeb Millwork, the company said this agreement deepens SBP’s offering in the growing Door Category and represents SBP’s “continued efforts to invest in high-performing and complementary businesses that enable geographic and market segment expansion.”
