GREENVILLE, SC -- US LBM Holdings, LLC announced that it will acquire GBS Building Supply of Greenville, SC from its employee shareholders. The acquisition is expected to close on October 5, 2015. Bob Barreto will continue leading GBS's day-to-day operations with his existing team in his current role as CEO and President.
In 1972, a group South Carolina-based homebuilders, under the leadership of R. Buford Landers, established a company to serve as their own supply source while also meeting the needs of all professional homebuilders. GBS has grown from a startup with just 10 employees to an employee-owned company with a staff over 100 strong. Today, GBS operates 6 locations across the Carolinas supplying windows, doors, stone, roofing, siding, millwork, lock hardware, columns, trim, mouldings, cabinetry, countertops, decking & railing, gypsum, lumber & plywood, insulation, and other building materials. In addition, GBS Building Supply operates a custom molding & millwork center and offers kitchen design services and floor system design.
"GBS is excited to join the US LBM team," said Bob Barreto, CEO and President of GBS Building Supply. "This new partnership allows us to continue to invest in operations and enhance customer service at all our locations. The opportunity for growth for our employees, customers, and vendor partners is extraordinary."
"GBS Building Supply is a great addition to the US LBM family and continues our strategy to diversify from both a product and geographical perspective," said L.T. Gibson, President & CEO of US LBM. "GBS has a proven team with a history of success. We are excited to partner with their associates and look forward to future opportunities together in the region."
