Specialty building materials distributor US LBM Holdings LLC, Buffalo Grove, Illinois, on Thursday announced it has acquired Brand Vaughan Lumber Co., a Georgia-based distributor that operates five locations in the state. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Founded in 1946 by R.L. Brand and Cy Vaughan, Brand Vaughan serves professional builders and contractors in the Georgia locations of Atlanta, Columbus, Madison, Athens and Lake Oconee. Its building product catalog includes lumber, engineered wood products, windows, exterior and interior doors and trim, rebar, roofing and siding, and the company provides an extensive range of installation services, such as structural framing, siding, windows, housewrap, millwork, and exterior and interior doors.

“We’re excited to join with US LBM, a partner that shares our commitment to people, innovation and delivering extra mile service,” said Jon Vaughan, the company’s president and general manager. “This partnership will allow us to continue to grow and create new opportunities for our valued team members and customers, building on our message of ‘Strength Lies Within.’”

US LBM’s existing operations in Georgia include Maner Builders Supply, a building products dealer with locations in Augusta, and BSA, a full-line building products distributor located in the northwest suburbs of Atlanta.

“Building strong relationships across the industry, as we have with Jon and his father Chip over the years, is a core value for US LBM,” said Jim Hooper, US LBM senior vice president of M&A. “We’re excited to now partner and work together with the much-respected team at Brand Vaughan.”

Added US LBM CEO L.T. Gibson: “Brand Vaughan has been a trusted supplier and partner to construction professionals in Georgia over the past 75 years, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to US LBM and continue their growth story. Brand Vaughan adds to US LBM an established, premier building products distributor and construction services provider in several fast-growing housing markets in Georgia, including the greater Atlanta metropolitan area.”
