Regional lumber and building materials supplier West Coast Lumber (WSL) has entered into the structural component manufacturing category with the acquisition of San Diego-based Stone Truss.

Stone Truss specializes in the custom design, cutting and manufacturing of wood roof trusses and wood floor trusses for residential, commercial and other applications. The company will continue to operate from its North San Diego County manufacturing facility and has near-term plans to increase its production capacity, according to Aug. 2 news release.

“We believe that this deal provides new opportunities for our team members and expanded services for our customers,” Stone Truss owner Richard Thomas said. Owners Thomas and Charlie Signorino will remain with the company, offering continuity for customers and employees.

WCL — a supplier launched by private equity firm Building Industry Partners in 2022 — currently serves customers throughout Southern California via four locations in Agoura Hills, Bakersfield, Camarillo and San Diego.

West Coast Lumber to Expand into Component Manufacturing

The acquisition of Stone Truss marks WCL’s entry into the structural component manufacturing category and an evolution of its product offering. The transaction comes within days of WCL’s announcement of Jason Walsh joining the company’s leadership team as Vice President of Component Manufacturing.

“Between the acquisition of Stone Truss and Jason joining our team, we are making significant strides with our expansion strategy,” said WCL CEI Joe Lawrence. “These advances ensure that we can deliver a wider range of solutions to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”

WCL officials say the company is actively seeking opportunities to invest in component manufacturing companies and partner with business leaders in the category along the West Coast, Arizona and Nevada.
