US LBM Holdings has acquired six-unit Mississippi dealer Bailey Lumber & Supply, on the heels of picking up Las Vegas-based BM Windows.

Bailey Lumber was purchased from the Bailey family, which founded the company in Jackson, Ms., in 1947. Today, based in Gulfport, Bailey’s offers a broad range of services and specialty products to both professional builders and d-i-yers, including roofing, siding, windows, cabinets, floor and roof truss systems, customized doors, and millwork. It will continue to be led by Richard Kostal, who is remaining with the company as president.

According to US LBM president and CEO L.T. Gibson, “With the acquisition of Bailey’s, a top distributor with a full line of building products and services, we’re furthering our strategy of partnering with local market leaders and increasing our presence in the growing southern U.S. construction market.”

Separately, US LBM purchased BM Windows from owners Jim and Rich Urello, who will remain with the company as president and VP, respectively. BM provides distribution, sales and installation services for windows and doors to customers in Las Vegas and Reno in Nevada.

BM will operate as a unit of US LBM’s Desert Companies. Led by president Terry Ono, Desert joined US LBM in 2014 and is a leading supplier of lumber, engineered wood, fasteners, roof and floor truss systems and more to residential homebuilders and contractors in the Las Vegas market.

“The addition of a specialty dealer in BM Windows strengthens our position and expands our product offering in an important existing market for us,” added Gibson.
