Grabber Construction Products, Concord, Ca., has been acquired by GMS, a leading North American distributor of gypsum wallboard and suspended ceiling systems.

Grabber is a 30+-year-old international distributor of quality products for construction professionals, including premium fasteners and fastening systems for wood, metal, and drywall, and a wide range of proprietary tools, accessories, equipment and building materials.

Grabber Concord will become the seventh location of GMS subsidiary J&B Materials, which has locations in Southern California and Hawaii.

“Having our California GSD team join with the GMS family is the right move for Grabber,” said Grabber CEO Roland Snyder. “Our two companies share a level of dedication and drive that makes us natural partners. With GMS’ expert guidance, Grabber’s reputation in the Bay Area will continue to thrive and grow.”

Based in Tucker, Ga., GMS operates a network of more than 200 distribution centers across the U.S. The acquisition marks its entry into the San Francisco Bay Area.
