Stock Building Supply Acquires Arkansas Based Building Materials Supplier

Stock Building Supply announced today that it acquired the assets of National Home Centers, Inc., a leading supplier of building materials in Arkansas, continuing Stock’s strategy of strengthening and expanding operations in advance of a housing recovery.

“We are pleased to complete this transaction and look forward to working with our new colleagues in central and northwest Arkansas,” said Joe Appelmann, President and CEO. “Stock transformed its operating model over the past year to become a leaner, more focused organization. This process has allowed us to seize significant opportunities like National Home Centers. We will continue to explore intelligent growth options both in our core markets and elsewhere if opportunities arise.”

Since The Gores Group, LLC acquired a majority stake in Stock in May 2009, the company has used the downturn in new construction to restructure its operations and strengthen its finances. Targeted acquisitions like National Home Centers expand Stock’s national footprint, which includes 19 markets with strong long-term growth forecasts.

Dwain Newman, former Chairman and CEO of National Home Centers, stated, “Today is an exciting milestone for National Home Centers. We are proud to be part of a company with a strong financial position and a promising future. Stock has a strong record of improving its own operations despite difficult market conditions and this transaction will allow National Home Centers to realize its full capabilities. The partnership with Stock allows us to remain fully committed to serving our customers with quality products and services.”

Ken Greene has been appointed Market Manager for Stock’s Arkansas operations. Greene has served in numerous positions within Stock including key posts in operations and sourcing.
