US LBM, a leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has acquired Comtech, a manufacturer and supplier of structural roof and floor trusses located in North Carolina.

Gibson. “With a well-earned reputation for quality and service, we’re pleased Comtech is joining US LBM.”
