Builders FirstSource Inc. plans to open a new distribution facility in Conroe, Texas, and to relocate its existing distribution facility in San Antonio.

CEO Floyd Sherman says the company is capitalizing on the continuing rapid population growth in Texas.

“Our recent Houston acquisition was a major step into a market we feel has very strong growth prospects. The purchase of the Conroe facility increases our footprint within this market, allowing us to service our current customers from the north side while providing us the opportunity to expand our customer base,” he says. “The relocation of our San Antonio location was necessary as the lease on our existing distribution facility, located on the northwest side of the market, was soon expiring. San Antonio is a very important market for us and the Schertz facility is an excellent one, located in the heart of this expanding market. We feel very fortunate to have secured these prime facilities within two of the best housing markets in the United States.”

The Conroe facility is located 40 miles north of downtown Houston. It is an 11.5-acre site that includes 60,000 square feet of warehouse, showroom and office space. Product offerings will include dimensional lumber and lumber sheet goods, interior and exterior doors, millwork and other distributed building products.

The new San Antonio facility is located in Schertz, Texas, about 20 miles northeast of downtown. This rail-served site sits on 15 acres and has approximately 90,000 square feet of warehouse and office space, and multiple outside storage sheds. When it opens, the location will distribute dimensional lumber and lumber sheet goods, but eventually it will also ship interior and exterior doors, as well as millwork.
