Henson Lumber acquires Decatur Lumber

Both companies have been in business for nearly 50 years

CRESSON, TX– Henson Lumber, a provider of high-quality lumber and building materials, announced its acquisition of Decatur Lumber, a lumberyard based in Decatur, Texas. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in Henson Lumber's expansion efforts and strengthens its position as a supplier in the state of Texas.

The acquisition of Decatur Lumber represents a natural synergy between two area leaders committed to providing exceptional products and services to customers. The combined expertise and resources of both companies will offer an even broader range of products to meet the needs of builders, contractors, and homeowners in the North Texas region.

"We are excited about the growth potential and look forward to expanding and bringing in more products and services to the area,” said Casey Wallace, COO at Henson Lumber. “Decatur Lumber is fortunate in having several long tenured employees which is a testament to Glenn and Wayne Trachta and will be a big plus as we grow our product line and add more staff. I can’t say enough good things about Wayne and Glenn for allowing us to make this acquisition possible.”
