Specialty building materials distributor US LBM Holdings LLC, Buffalo Grove, Illinois, has acquired Ridgefield Supply Co., a Ridgefield, Connecticut-based building products dealer. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Founded in 1883, Ridgefield Supply operates an 89,000-square-foot facility in Ridgefield that includes lumberyard, warehouses, a hardware and paint store, window and millwork showrooms and an employee-training center. The company serves customers in Fairfield County in Connecticut and Westchester County in New York. Glen Albee will continue to lead Ridgefield Supply’s day-to-day operations as president.

“US LBM has a reputation for excellence with a culture that puts people and customers first, and we’re excited for Ridgefield Supply’s next chapter,” said Albee. “With US LBM, our customers will be able to continue to rely on the same team they know and trust while having access to a wider range of specialty products and brands.”

In addition to Ridgefield Supply, US LBM’s operating divisions in the New York tristate area include East Haven Builders Supply, Feldman Lumber, Direct Cabinet Sales and Universal Supply.

“Ridgefield Supply has a long history of success, and they’re a great fit for US LBM,” said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “The New York-New Jersey-Connecticut tristate region is a growing market and adding a dealer and team of Ridgefield Supply’s caliber strengthens and enhances our position in the nation’s largest market.”
