National Building Materials Distributor Expands Reach

US LBM Acquires Texas’ Oldham Lumber

US LBM, a leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has expanded in Texas with the acquisition of Oldham Lumber Company

Founded in 1921, Oldham Lumber provides lumber, plywood, engineered wood and framing materials to residential builders and commercial contractors in Collin, Dallas, Denton, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall and Tarrant counties in North Texas. Oldham operates two locations, a 10 acre yard in Dallas and a 12 acre yard northeast of Dallas in Melissa, Texas that currently operates under the name McKinney Lumber and was acquired by Oldham earlier this year.

“Our partnership with US LBM and the benefits it brings, such as wider access to technology, a broader catalog of products and professional development opportunities, will allow Oldham, our team and customers to continue to thrive and prosper together,” said Harley “Bubba” Finnell, Jr., who will lead Oldham Lumber as president and general manager.

“Oldham’s long history of building relationships and delivering outstanding levels of expertise and service has made it a name builders trust in North Texas, and we’re excited to welcome the Oldham team to US LBM,” said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “The addition of Oldham strengthens US LBM’s position in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, one of the nation’s fastest-growing metro areas, and aligns with our other recent acquisitions and established portfolio in Texas, providing US LBM a strong network of brands in the state that serve all customer types, from national, production, multifamily, industrial and commercial builders to remodelers and homeowners.”

The acquisition of Oldham Lumber is US LBM’s third acquisition in Texas this year, having previously added Higginbotham Brothers, which operates 38 locations across the state, and J.P. Hart Lumber, a building products distributor and manufacturer with operations in the Austin, Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth and San Antonio metro areas.

Building Industry Advisors served as the exclusive advisor Oldham Lumber.

US LBM is the largest privately owned full-line distributor of specialty building materials in the United States. Offering a comprehensive portfolio of specialty products, including windows, doors, millwork, wallboard, roofing, siding, engineered components and cabinetry, US LBM combines the scale and operational advantages of a national platform with a local go-to-market strategy through its national network of locations across the country.
