Two of the largest building products suppliers can finally exhale, as one has officially acquired the other.

ProBuild Holdings is now property of Builders FirstSource.

The combination will create a national dealer with 2014 combined revenues of approximately $6.1 billion, according to a company release.

The company will leverage its nationwide network to focus on four critical customer segments, including production builders, custom builders, multi-family/commercial, and repair and remodel. Now with more than 430 locations, the new company will serve 74 of the top 100 metropolitan statistical areas across 40 states.

CEO Floyd Sherman says the acquisition creates “a unique company with enhanced scale and a national footprint. By bringing together the extensive products and services offerings of both Builders FirstSource and ProBuild, we will further strengthen our long-standing customer relationships.”

In conjunction with the closing of its acquisition of ProBuild, the company completed its previously announced public offering of 12 million shares of its common stock at a price per share of $12.80 including 8 million shares sold by the company and 4 million shares sold by a private equity firm.
