By   /  

BuilderUp, a regional building supplies distributor and manufacturer serving customers in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and the Washington, D.C. area, has been bought by US LBM, a prominent distributor of specialist building materials in the United States.

BuilderUp now has three Maryland locations: two building material supply outlets in Owings and Waldorf, as well as a production site in Owings that produces fabricated steel items as well as roof and floor trusses.

BuilderUp’s comprehensive collection of construction materials includes lumber, windows, doors, mouldings, engineered wood products, concrete and masonry products, outdoor decking, hardscape and landscape supplies, in addition to its manufactured products.

The BuilderUp’s day-to-day operations will continue to be led by General Manager Jeff LeBar.

“We are thrilled to join a national leader in US LBM, which will provide greater opportunities for our associates and allow us to expand the range of specialty building products we can offer to our residential and commercial builder customers,” said BuilderUp’s General Manager Jeff LeBar.

US LBM’s existing locations in Maryland operate under the banners of ALCO Doors, Myers Building Product Specialists and Universal Supply.

“BuilderUp has a strong team, with a dynamic mix of manufacturing, specialty products and services and extends US LBM’s reach into the growing Mid-Atlantic markets of Maryland, northern Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C. metro area,” said L.T. Gibson, President and CEO of US LBM.

US LBM is the country’s largest privately held full-line distributor of specialty building supplies.

US LBM combines the scale and operational advantages of a national platform with a local go-to-market strategy through its national network of locations across the country, offering a comprehensive portfolio of specialty products such as windows, doors, millwork, wallboard, roofing, siding, engineered components, and cabinetry.
