GMS has consolidated its seven Dallas area locations under the name of its Cowtown Materials division, based in Fort Worth, Tx.

Renamed were Contractors Choice Supply, Lubbock and Midland, acquired in August 2014; Longhorn Materials, Dallas, and Frisco merged in October 2015; and Southwestern Building Materials, Amarillo, picked up in December 2017.

“We have many customers that work across all of these areas, and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to work with all of our locations,” said Cowtown GM Russell Hughey. “That’s why Cowtown decided to rebrand all of its locations under the Cowtown name.”

The rebranding means more convenience for customers. In addition to filling out only one credit application, they can now remit payments at any location and access their information through a single Cowtown website, www.CowtownMaterials.com

In all, GMS operates a network of more than 200 distribution centers across the U.S.
