On Oct. 4, Buffalo Grove, Illinois-based building materials distributor US LBM announced it has acquired Jacksonville-based Manning Building Supplies, a provider of building products and manufactured components to professional builders in Eastern and Central Florida.
Financial terms were not disclosed. Manning’s product portfolio includes lumber and trusses, along with custom doors, windows and millwork, which it also provides installation services for.
“We are thrilled to partner with the team at Manning Building Supplies, who are well known for providing exceptional service, products and solutions to Florida builders,” said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “With Manning and Raymond Building Supply, US LBM has a robust network of distribution and manufacturing locations throughout Florida, serving all of the state’s top housing markets, including the Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and Sarasota metro areas.”
Manning operates nine locations in Florida, seven building materials distribution yards — six of which include custom door shops — and two truss manufacturing plants.
“US LBM shares Manning Building Supplies’ mission of providing our customers with the best products and experience,” said Jimmy Cissel, who, along with Steve Wiechens, will continue to lead Manning’s day-to-day operations. “We’re looking forward to this new opportunity and continuing to serve our communities.”
US LBM now operates 19 locations in Florida, including five truss manufacturing facilities. On MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists, the company ranks No. 3 among building materials/construction.
