Within a few short months, Nation’s Best has grown to nine locations in Texas and Oklahoma and more than 200 employees through three separate acquisitions.

Based in Crested Butte, Co., Nation’s Best Holdings, LLC was founded in 2019 by industry veteran Chris Miller with aggressive expansion plans in mind. Its strategy is to have acquired firms continue to operate under their existing brands and leadership teams, alongside the Nation’s Best management team, while affiliating with Do it Best.

The company initially purchased 24-year-old Lambert Lumber & Home Center, Broken Bow, Ok.

In February, they added three-unit Groom & Sons, founded in 1948 with yards in East Dallas, Mabank and Athens, Tx.

In March, Nation’s Best bought five-unit Bridgeport Building Centers, founded in 1990 with locations in Bridgeport, Alvord, Jack County, Springtown and Tawakoni, Tx.

“We are delighted with this opportunity to partner with Nation’s Best, which we believe will provide our company and associates with the tools and resources necessary to support our continued growth and success,” said Ronnie Hess, representing the leadership team at Bridgeport Building Centers. “We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past 30 years and look forward to providing our customers with the highest quality of service in the years to come.”
