At the end of April FBM acquired Mid America Drywall in Wichita, KS. Derec LaMunyon and his team have already joined John Hacking in our current Wichita location.
On June 1, FBM acquired Kent Gypsum in Lakewood, WA and Ken/API in Covington, KY.
Kent Gypsum has 4 locations in the Seattle area. Matt Klein and his team will continue on under our FBM brand. I am very happy to finally be in the Pacific Northwest and look forward to growing our business there. Larry Rogers will assist the Kent team with the transition.
Ken/API has 8 locations, 4 in Kentucky and 4 in Ohio. Jon Votel will remain a consultant for the company and Dan Guess and his team will continue on with us. Art Grecco will lead this transition and work with the entire Ken/API team.
We are now 98 locations and growing.
Our strong culture of safety, customer focus, team orientation, integrity, honesty, and being the best we can be will not change.
I’m very proud to be part of this dynamic team and I’d like to thank all of you for helping our business grow. We will continue to become a bigger and better company where it makes sense.
