FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — US LBM, a leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has acquired Comtech, a manufacturer and supplier of structural roof and floor trusses located in North Carolina.
Founded in 1970, Comtech manufactures floor and roof trusses and provides engineered wood products to builders in the Carolinas, including Raleigh, Pinehurst and Greenville, and along the coast from Morehead City to Myrtle Beach and Pawley's Island.
Comtech will operate as part of US LBM’s Professional Builders Supply, which distributes residential and commercial building materials, such as lumber, siding, trim, doors, windows, decking and railing, to builders and remodelers across the Carolinas. Professional Builders Supply also provides turn-key installation services, including residential roofing and siding.
"The addition of Comtech’s truss manufacturing capabilities enhances the strength of US LBM’s network in the Carolinas, expanding our service offering and product mix across several key markets in the region," said US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. "With a well-earned reputation for quality and service, we’re pleased Comtech is joining US LBM."
The announcement comes days after US LBM's previous acquisition of Georgia Truss, an Atlanta, Ga. manufacturer and supplier of structural roof and floor trusses.
