DULUTH, Ga. -- Specialty Building Products LLC continued its expansion efforts with the mid-October agreement to acquire Texas-based DW Distribution Inc.

The acquisition, which follows upon SBP's recent acquisition of Reeb Millwork, provides expanded product offerings and geographical reach while deepening its capabilities in the door category. It represents SBP's continued efforts to invest in high-performing and complementary businesses that enable geographic and market segment expansion, according to a company statement.

Founded in 1955, DW Distribution is a third-generation, family-run distributor of building materials, millwork products and door units, serving customers in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico.

Over the past year, DW Distribution expanded its millwork capabilities. The acquisition is expected to close in 2021. Following the completion of the acquisition, DW will maintain its existing brand name, geographic locations and management team, led by President Aaron Elliott, as part of SBP.
