Your Building Centers, Altoona, Pa., has taken over 68-year-old Berlin Lumber Co., Berlin, Pa., which will retain the Berlin Lumber name.

The deal marks YBC’s fourth acquisition in the last three years. Growth, however, is far from complete for the 16-store chain, which has other acquisitions already in the works.

At Berlin Lumber, YBC expects few changes, and all 24 employees were expected to continue. Former owner/president Doug Brant will stay on for “the immediate future.”
