U.S. LBM Holdings has acquired Blevins Building Supply, a building materials distributor with five locations in western North Carolina and one in southern Virginia.

Founded in 1946 by Quincy and Wayne Blevins, Blevins Building Supply is a Glade Valley, N.C.-based provider of specialty building materials, including roofing, cabinetry, windows, appliances, insulation and paint. With the acquisition, U.S. LBM expands its presence in the rapidly growing North Carolina market and adds its first location in Virginia.

Blevins Building Supply will continue to operate under the Blevins name as a unit of U.S. LBM’s Parker’s Building Supply, which has 25 locations in Texas and California. Third generation owner Bill Blevins, who has led the company for more than 60 years, will stay on in an advisory role, with general manager Randy Miller leading day-to-day operations.

“Parker’s and Blevins have complementary operating models and share the same principles of providing superior customer service and a wide catalog of products to both do-it-yourselfers and building professionals,” said Parker’s Building Supply president Chris Rivers.
