R.P. Lumber expands into Iowa with Acquisition of Dick-N-Sons LumberFebruary 19th, 2021 by Editor
R.P. Lumber Co., Inc., a home improvement company with 71 locations, has announced its acquisition of Dick-N-Sons Lumber, in Blue Grass, Iowa. Founded in 1901, Dick-N-Sons serves a diverse customer base of homebuilders, contractors, and do-it yourself clients.
R.P. Lumber already operates in the Quad Cities region but this will be the first location for the company in the state of Iowa. Dick-N-Sons will operate under the R.P. Lumber brand with key team members continuing at the company.
“We are excited to enhance and grow our service to the people of eastern Iowa from this new facility,” said Robert Plummer, president and CEO of R.P. Lumber. “The Van De Walle family have built a great company and we could not be more pleased to welcome the Dick-N-Sons team to the R.P. Lumber family.”
The Van De Walle Family added, “We are very active in our community and this was a very important decision for our family. Our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve are important to us and we know that, in working with R.P. Lumber and the Plummer family, they will be in good hands.”
This expansion follows R.P. Lumber’s June 2020 acquisition of Build-Rite Lumber and Supply chain in Wyoming. The transaction with Dick-N-Sons closed on February 5, 2021, with February 6, 2021 serving as the official first day of R.P. Lumber doing business in the Hawkeye State.
