ST. PAUL, Minn. — US LBM has acquired Villaume Industries, a manufacturer of wood trusses for new residential and commercial construction and of custom wood crating, boxes and pallets in Minnesota.

Based just outside of St. Paul in Eagan, Minn., Villaume is a leading designer and manufacturer of precision wood products. The company provides floor and roof trusses for national, regional and local homebuilders in the Twin Cities metropolitan area and across Minnesota. Additionally, Villaume engineers and manufactures custom wood packaging of pallets, crates and cores for manufacturing companies.

With the addition of Villaume, US LBM now operates 21 locations in Minnesota through its network of divisions in the state, which include Lampert Lumber, NexGen and Lyman Companies; Villaume will operate as a unit of Lyman.

"Villaume has a reputation for both excellence and partnership, and we're pleased to have them join the US LBM team," said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. "Villaume's capabilities and footprint complement Lyman and its addition to our portfolio enhances our already strong position in the growing Twin Cities market and beyond."

US LBM recently expanded its operations into Delaware with the opening of a new roofing and siding location in New Castle.
