Buildingonline Eupdate News: Builders Firstsource Opens New Facilities Serving The Houston And San Antonio, Texas Markets | Construction Industry News

Commenting on the new locations, Floyd Sherman, Builders FirstSource CEO said, “Our recent Houston acquisition was a major step into a market we feel has very strong growth prospects. The purchase of the Conroe facility increases our footprint within this market, allowing us to service our current customers from the north side while providing us the opportunity to expand our customer base.” Mr. Sherman added, “The relocation of our San Antonio location was necessary as the lease on our existing distribution facility, located on the northwest side of the market, was soon expiring. San Antonio is a very important market for us and the Schertz facility is an excellent one, located in the heart of this expanding market. We feel very fortunate to have secured these prime facilities within two of the best housing markets in the United States.” About Builders FirstSource Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Builders FirstSource is a leading supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction.
