BMC, a provider of building materials and construction services, has signed an asset purchase agreement to acquire Atlanta-based Robert Bowden Inc, a supplier of doors, windows, trim, millwork, cornice, siding, stair parts and decking. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The move will expand BMC’s custom and production millwork capabilities in the southeastern United States.

“Over the past 32 years, Robert Bowden has built a fine reputation for excellence for providing custom and production millwork,” said Peter Alexander, BMC’s CEO, in a statement. “We are very excited about growing both companies through the combined strength of RBI and BMC, and both companies will remain focused on our customers through the combination”.

“We are very proud of the history of RBI and the culture that has been created, and we’re very grateful for the customers who have honored us with their business and friendship,”  said Nick Massengill, president of RBI, in a statement. “The alignment of cultures between these two great companies will fit the strategy of BMC and will provide scale for RBI. The transaction presents great opportunities for future growth and prosperity.”

BMC, which recently merged with Stock Building Supply, currently has 38 lumber yards, 18 truss manufacturing facilities, 23 millwork operations, and eight showrooms and design centers in 11 of the top 25 single-family construction markets.

Robert Bowden Inc. was founded in 1983. It became employee-owned company in 2001. Approximately 300 people work at its branch distribution centers in Marietta, Duluth and McDonough, Ga., as well as a manufacturing operation in Marietta.
