Four-unit dealer West Coast Lumber, San Diego, Ca., has acquired San Diego-based Stone Truss, a 30-year-old designer and manufacturer of roof and floor truss systems.
The acquisition marks WCL’s entry into the structural component manufacturing category and an evolution of its product offering. The transaction also comes within days of WCL’s announcement of Jason Walsh joining the company’s leadership team as vice president of component manufacturing.
“Between the acquisition of Stone Truss and Jason joining our team, we are making significant strides with our expansion strategy,” said Joe Lawrence, CEO of WCL. “These advances ensure that we can deliver a wider range of solutions to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”
Founded in 1986, Stone Truss specializes in the custom design, cutting, and manufacturing of wood roof trusses and wood floor trusses for residential, commercial, and other applications. The company will continue to operate from its North San Diego County manufacturing facility and has near-term plans to increase its production capacity.
Stone Truss owners Richard Thomas and Charlie Signorino will remain with the company.
WCL is a division of Building Industry Partners.
