Generational Equity Advises Home Center Supply in its Sale to US LBM Holdings

By Generational Equity


Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately held businesses, is pleased to announce the sale of its client, Home Center Supply, to US LBM Holdings. The acquisition closed July 1, 2021.

Home Center Supply (Home Center) is a well-established retailer of high-quality lumber and hardware products. It operates two True Value branded retail hardware and lumber stores in Heber and Payson, Arizona. Home Center sells products in a broad range of categories including lumber, hardware, doors, windows, roofing, siding, decking, drywall, trusses, and blocks.

The Company caters to contractors and retail consumers in Heber and Payson, Arizona and surrounding areas. However, Home Center primarily focuses on the non-retail market and has successfully expanded its revenue base through its relationships with contractors and home builders.

The Company differentiates itself in the market by carrying an extensive array of high-quality products, maintaining high levels of inventory, and providing superior customer service. Further, given the location of its two stores, Home Center experiences limited competition. Through various initiatives and exceptional service, management has successfully developed a loyal base of customers that has enabled the business to operate for over 30 years.

US LBM Holdings, located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, is one of the largest building products distributors in the United States. US LBM operates more than 400 locations nationwide.  Through their local divisions, they provide a wide range of building materials to custom home builders, national builders and specialty contractors. Their model combines the advantages of national scale with the excellent service levels, expertise, an entrepreneurial culture and customer relationships of their local brands.

Generational Equity Executive Managing Director of M&A – Western Region, Stephen Crisham, led by Sr. Managing Director Mergers & Acquisitions, Fred Zweifel, with support by Sr. Managing Director – Western Region, Lori Galloway, closed the transaction. Senior Managing Director Doug Morrow established the initial relationship with Home Center Supply.

“This acquisition made strategic sense for the US LBM footprint,” said Zweifel.
