U.S.: LBM buys over R&K Building Supplies

Leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States (U.S.), LBM Holdings, LLC, has acquired R&K Building Supplies, based in Arizona, U.S.

Founded in 1974, R&K Building Supplies distributes lumber as well as a broad line of specialty products, such as windows, doors, millwork, insulation, trusses, lumber and other materials, to contractors and homeowners from its location outside of Phoenix. R&K’s expansive facilities include sales offices, showrooms, a lumberyard, truss plant and multiple warehouses. In the coming months, R&K President, Chad Coons, will be retiring from the company, and his son, Chip Coons, currently vice-president of R&K, will take over as president.

“We congratulate Chad for his many successful years leading R&K and are excited to welcome Chip and the R&K team to LBM,” said LBM President and CEO, L.T. Gibson. “R&K shares our values of operational excellence and continuous improvement, and this new partnership brings another market leader into the LBM fold, complements our recently-opened Rosen Materials location in Phoenix and expands our presence in a growing construction market in the Southwest.”
