Builders FirstSource acquires West Orange Lumber
Dallas-based Builders FirstSource has purchased West Orange Lumber Company. The deal closed on July 31, 2014. West Orange was represented by The JIAN Group of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Groveland, Florida-based West Orange supplies lumber, roof and floor trusses, custom windows and doors, as well as installation services, to residential home builders and commercial contractors in the Central Florida region. Sales were about $15 million for fiscal 2013.
"The acquisition of West Orange provides us with an extensive customer base that includes custom and semi-custom builders, along with commercial contractors, and fits nicely within our overall growth strategy,” said Floyd Sherman, Builders FirstSource CEO. “This new location also offers onsite manufacturing capabilities of roof and floor trusses, and will allow us to more easily serve the fast growing, northern portion of the Orlando market, providing us with an excellent opportunity to significantly grow our share in this market."
John Arellano, VP of West Orange Lumber, will remain as the general manager of the operation.
