Your First Source for Building in Michigan
Building in Michigan can be tough, but you do it. You're a builder, and as a builder, you live by an undeniable bottom line. Whether you raise one home at a time or whole tracts of housing, success—profit—comes down to having the exact building supplies you need at a job site when you and your workers are ready for them. You don't have time for errors, and you can't afford waste. You just want a reliable supplier who understands what you're trying to accomplish and will get it right the first time every time.
Those are the principles that Builders FirstSource was founded on. We're the nation's largest supplier of structural building products, value-added components and services, but we've built our network by serving one community at a time. We may be based in Dallas, Texas, and we may have stores in 40 states, but our experienced teams of trade professionals are locally based and locally focused on the communities where they're located.
In Michigan, our Builders FirstSource locations are Michigan stores stocked with all of the best select lumber, building materials and wood components that homeowners and builders living and working on the Upper and Lower Peninsulas need and want. We're your first source for everything from basic elements like lumber, framing materials, and roof and floor trusses to essentials like roofing systems, windows, doors and siding as well as stylish finishing touches like flooring, cabinets and countertops. For the outdoors, we have decking, fencing, and our ever-popular garage and pole barn packages.
Equally important, however, at each of our Michigan locations, you'll find friendly, helpful people who know the local construction industry and are qualified to answer your questions about the products we have, the ones you'd like us to order for you, and the ones you'd like us to build or manufacture to your specifications. They're the source of our construction expertise and our ability to give you the personalized attention and one-on-one assistance that you deserve. No matter how large the job or how small, our staff guides you from quote to completion.
Although we serve many contractors, subcontractors, builders and remodelers from every walk of residential construction, we welcome homeowners and serious do-it-yourselfers too. We can provide that critical piece of how-to advice that's never in the instructions, help you optimize a plan, or refer you to a reputable local contractor who will turn your plan into reality.
Whatever you're building, remodeling, changing or repairing, add our Builders FirstSource team to yours. Stop by your local Builders FirstSource lumberyard. Show us what you're trying to accomplish, and let us show you why builders all over the country make us their first source for all of their building supplies—Michigan included.
The Builders FirstSource Story
Builders FirstSource is driven by the desire to provide professional class building materials and services to homebuilders and remodelers across the country.
In the 1990's, the building materials industry changed significantly. Homebuilders grew by acquisition, creating large national competitors. Building materials manufacturers also consolidated. It was inevitable that the building material supply industry, the companies between the consolidating manufacturers and consolidating homebuilders, must consolidate as well. Builders FirstSource was born from this industry evolution.
In March 1998, the Company's management team, with the backing of JLL Partners, a private investment firm with significant committed capital, made its first acquisition. Builders FirstSource continued to grow through a combination of strategic acquisitions and internal expansion. Between 1998 and the beginning of 2015, we acquired and integrated thirty-three companies. In June 2005, Builders FirstSource completed an initial public offering of its common stock, after which JLL Partners maintained a significant investment in the company.
On July 31, 2015, Builders FirstSource acquired its largest competitor, ProBuild Holdings LLC, creating a more diversified company with enhanced scale and improved geographic footprint. The combined company, on a pro forma basis, generated over $6 billion in annual revenue in 2015 and currently operates approximately 400 locations in 40 states, with a market presence in 74 of the top 100 Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the United States.
Builders FirstSource strives to be the preferred supplier of structural building materials and services to homebuilders and remodelers across the nation by giving them both personalized attention at the local level and a wide range of resources only offered by a large company.
Builders FirstSource's goal is to provide outstanding products and services to every customer, regardless of size.
