Spahn & Rose Lumber to Acquire Georgia’s Metro Building Products

By   /  

Metro Building Products, based in Marietta, Georgia, has agreed to be purchased by Spahn & Rose Lumber Co.

“Metro Building Products shares the same values and corporate culture as Spahn & Rose,” Dave Davis, CEO of Spahn & Rose, stated.

“Like Spahn & Rose, Metro provides outstanding service to both contractor and homeowner customers. This was a unique business opportunity, and we’re very proud to have Metro join Spahn & Rose.”

According to Davis, Spahn & Rose has no plans to change Metro Building Products’ name, marketing focus, or local management.

The planned acquisition brings together two successful lumber and building-materials companies.

Spahn & Rose, founded in 1904, is a leading lumber distributor in the Midwest and has been named one of the top 100 lumber and building-materials distributors in the country by ProSales, a contractor and construction-industry newsletter.

Metro Building Products was founded in 1991 by Joe McKenzie and his wife, Tina.

Atlanta, Kennesaw, Smyrna, Sandy Springs, Vinings, and several other communities in Cobb County, northwest Georgia, are served by the company.

Metro specializes in high-quality building materials such as cedar and Douglas fir timbers, decking, cedar shakes, Big Green Egg grills, and iron and aluminum railings.

“For more than three decades, Metro Building Products has always maintained a high level of customer service while providing quality products to contractors and homeowners,” McKenzie said.

“Metro has been growing and thriving, and with Spahn & Rose we’re going to have new and exciting opportunities to serve our customers.”

Spahn & Rose’s acquisition of Metro Building Products will be the firm’s third major acquisition in the last three years.

It bought Dunn Lumber in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, in February 2019, and Moeller & Walter Lumber in Reinbeck, Iowa, in February 2020.
