US LBM Acquires Texas’ Oldham LumberOctober 5th, 2021 by Editor
US LBM, a distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has expanded in Texas with the acquisition of Oldham Lumber Co. Founded in 1921, Oldham serves professional builders in North Texas, including the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Oldham Lumber 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. Oldham acquired McKinney Lumber earlier this year.
“What has made Oldham Lumber successful over the past 100 years is establishing strong relationships and creating a high-level of trust with our customers, and we’re pleased to find a partner in US LBM that shares and recognizes the importance of these values,” said Harley “Bubba” Finnell, Jr., who will lead Oldham Lumber as president and general manager. “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.”
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.
“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.”
