US LBM Buying Hart of Texas

US LBM will grow to 65 locations in Texas with its planned acquisition of eight-unit J.P Hart Lumber and Hart Components, San Antonio.

Founded in 1939 by J.P. “Jimmie” Hart, Hart’s operations serve the major markets in Texas with five building materials yards and one window distribution facility across Austin, Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth and San Antonio. Hart Components operates two roof truss and wall panel manufacturing facilities in Austin and San Antonio.

“Joining with US LBM in our 82nd anniversary year will allow us to continue to grow, provide new solutions for our valued customers and opportunities for our dedicated people,” said W.B. “Speedy” Hart and Greg Wright, who will both remain with Hart, with Wright continuing to lead day-to-day operations following completion of the acquisition.

The deal is expected to close during the third quarter of 2021.
